Move files with Storage to Storage

Learn how to transfer files across storages using the Storage to Storage operation.

💡 What is Storage to Storage?

A Storage to Storage (STS) data pipeline operation allows you to retrieve files from one source storage, and to run a multiple copy job to one or several destination storages.

✅ Supported source and destination storage types

  • Google Cloud Storage bucket

  • Amazon S3 bucket

  • SFTP directory

⚙️ How it works

Every time a new file matching the specified rule appears in the source directory, it will be:

  • removed from the source directory,

  • if options have been set accordingly, copied to an archive directory located in the same storage, inside a folder named as the filename date,

  • and transferred to one or more output directories (destinations) located in different storages.

📋 How to deploy a Storage to Storage data operation

  1. Access your tailer folder (created during installation).

  2. Create a working folder as you want, and create a JSON file for your data operation inside.

  3. Prepare your JSON configuration file. Refer to this page to learn about all the parameters.

  4. Access your working folder by running the following command:

    cd "[path to your working folder]"
  5. To deploy the data operation, run the following command:

    tailer deploy configuration your-file.json
  6. Log in to Tailer Studio to check the status and details of your data operation.

  7. Add a file with the right template in the source folder

  8. Access your output folder(s), and archive folder, if any, to check the result of the data operation.
