Improving Performance for S3A

This section includes tips for improving performance when working with data stored in Amazon S3

The further the Hadoop cluster is from the Amazon S3 installation, or the narrower the network connection is, the longer the operation will take. Even a Hadoop cluster deployed within Amazon's own infrastructure may encounter network delays from throttled VM network connections.

Network bandwidth limits notwithstanding, there are some options which can be used to tune the performance of an upload:
