why aws s3 transfer acceleration is not working

0 votes

I have to upload some files that are between 3 and 7Gb to s3. The default upload speed when using the AWS Console is about 1.3 Mbs. I read about transfer acceleration here:

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/transfer-acceleration-examples.html#transfer-acceleration-examples-aws-cli

So I followed the steps:

  1. Turn on transfer acceleration on the bucket, in the console. Then...

    aws s3api put-bucket-accelerate-configuration --bucket [bucket name] --accelerate-configuration Status=Enabled

    aws configure set default.s3.use_accelerate_endpoint true

    aws s3 cp some_file.txt s3://[bucket]/some_file.txt --region us-east-1 --endpoint-ur http://[bucket].s3-accelerate.amazonaws.com

It uploads still at the same 1.3 Mbs. I am WFH so subject to Wifi, but still I wish it could be better. Is there anything else? Do I need to use Python boto3? I was hoping this would be quicker.

Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration is a bucket-level functionality that allows you to send files over vast distances between your client and an S3 bucket quickly, easily, and securely. Transfer Acceleration is a feature that improves the speed of data transfers into S3 buckets from all around the world. Amazon CloudFront's globally distributed edge locations are used for Transfer Acceleration. Data is forwarded to Amazon S3 over an optimal network path as it arrives at an edge site.

What are the benefits of using Transfer Acceleration?
For a variety of reasons, you may want to use Transfer Acceleration on a bucket:

From all around the world, your consumers upload to a centralised bucket.

You move gigabytes to terabytes of data across continents on a regular basis.

When uploading to Amazon S3, you can't use all of your internet capacity.
