A customer implemented AWS Storage Gateway with a gateway-cached volume at their main
office. An event takes the link between the main and branch office offline. Which methods will
enable the branch office to access their data? Choose 3 answers

A.
Use a HTTPS GET to the Amazon S3 bucket where the files are located.

B.
Restore by implementing a lifecycle policy on the Amazon S3 bucket.

C.
Make an Amazon Glacier Restore API call to load the files into another Amazon S3 bucket within
four to six hours.

D.
Launch a new AWS Storage Gateway instance AMI in Amazon EC2, and restore from a gateway
snapshot.

E.
Create an Amazon EBS volume from a gateway snapshot, and mount it to an Amazon EC2
instance.

F.
Launch an AWS Storage Gateway virtual iSCSI device at the branch office, and restore from a
gateway snapshot.

Explanation:
A is certainly not right, because files persisted by Storage Gateway to S3 are not visible, let
alone be accessible. https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?threadID=109748
B is invalid option because you cannot apply Lifecycle Policies because AWS Storage
Gateway does not give you that option. Cached Volumes are never stored to Glacier and
hence “C” is not a valid.
