SFTP Gateway is a secure, pre-configured SFTP server that saves uploaded files to an Amazon S3 bucket.
SFTP Gateway uses a different approach than other S3-based file system products, making it more reliable for production systems. Rather than using a permanent mount or virtual file system, it monitors file descriptors as new files are written to SFTP directories. Once the file is finished writing and the file descriptor is closed, it pushes the entire file to an S3 Bucket. SFTP Gateway is simple, lightweight, and reliable.
When coupled with S3 Events and AWS Lambda, it is the ideal entry point for automated integration between your AWS application and external or third-party systems. It also complies with corporate security policies that require key-based SFTP file transfers.
