Amazon S3 to S3 Data Transfers

In addition to SFTP file transfers, you can configure direct S3 to S3 transfers in PHC. This allows customers that have existing Amazon S3 buckets to pull S3 files (objects) into a PHC project. This is useful if you frequently transfer multi-gigabyte files, such as BAM files. It also allows you to configure a time for daily transfer jobs.

Transfer Amazon S3 Files

  1. On the left side menu of PHC, click Files and Transfer.
  2. Click the Add Job. Add S3 files

The Add New Transfer Job dialog displays. Use the following information to fill in the fields:

Field Description
Name A user-friendly name
Start Time Job start time in the 24-hour format. For example, 13:00 is 1:00 PM.
Destination Prefix Creates a folder using the field name. A blank field saves files at the root level.
Move files Check to move files and delete the files from the source. Leave unchecked to copy files and not delete source files.
