CAM is integrated with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) cloud storage that can be used to back up, store, and retrieve data. The S3 configuration allows you to backup documents to an AWS S3 bucket owned by you. All your uploaded documents will be copied to your own S3 bucket, while CAM will manage the document metadata. The S3 buckets are private and encrypted by default; both the access key and the secret key are required to authenticate the configuration.
Note: S3 is a prerequisite configuration for using Content Mirror. User access to edit the bucket or the objects within the bucket has to be determined by the S3 bucket owner. CAM is not liable for any updates to your S3 bucket.
Important: Currently, CAM supports and uses TLS 1.2 by default, but allows TLS 1.0/1.1 if the Data Uploader is run on a Windows 2012 Server.
On June 28, 2023, AWS is dropping all support for TLS 1.0/1.1 and this could affect users using Windows Server 2012 or older with the use of Data Uploader.
Windows Server 2016 and above are the natively supported versions with 1.2.
