Article Summary


If you're using the Amazon S3 cloud storage service, storage drivers are used to establish the connection between your applications and the cloud storage infrastructure. The storage drivers are an abstract representation of the bucket in the S3 service. You can make use of your existing buckets and folder paths to allow Dataloop to read and write data. For more information about Amazon S3, see the Amazon S3.

This topic describes how to create Amazon S3 storage driver in the Dataloop platform as part of your AWS integration.


You can create an Amazon S3 storage driver on the Dataloop platform if you complete one of the following Amazon integrations:

  • Cross Account
  • Access Key
  • STS

For more information, see the Integration Overview.

  1. Log in to the Dataloop platform.
  2. Select Data Management from the left-side panel.
  3. Select the Storage Drivers tab, and then click Create Storage Driver, or click on the down-arrow and select the Create Storage Driver from the list. A new storage driver pop-up window is displayed.
