This article describes the steps to migrate data such as images, videos, documents, etc, from an existing S3 bucket to an ObjectiveFS filesystem.
We recommend using an ObjectiveFS filesystem and an EC2 instance in the same region as your existing S3 bucket for best performance and to save on data transfer cost.
aws configureand provide your existing AWS S3 bucket’s credentials.
# mount.objectivefs <filesystem> /ofs
# mkdir /ofs/dest # aws s3 cp s3://<existing S3 bucket> /ofs/dest --recursive
