HYFY Storage Regions

HYFY keeps your videos safe by storing them in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) object storage service, Amazon S3.  S3 is designed to provide 99.999999999% durability and 99.99% availability over a given year.

By default, HYFY videos are stored in the "us-east-1" region of S3 which resides in the US.

We understand that some HYFY customers require their data to be store in specific geographical regions to meet company policies or government compliance regulations.  To that end, we have augmented HYFY to allow you to choose the S3 region where your data is stored.  You can choose from the following regions:

  • US East (N. Virginia) us-east-1
  • US West (N. California) us-west-1
  • US West (Oregon) us-west-2
  • Asia Pacific (Singapore) ap-southeast-1
  • Asia Pacific (Sydney) ap-southeast-2
  • Asia Pacific (Tokyo) ap-northeast-1
  • EU (Ireland) eu-west-1

You can change the region where your videos are stored by visiting your HYFY account details page: https://app.hyfy.io/accounts/details/ and changing the "Storage Region" setting.

NOTE the change will only impact videos recorded going forward.  Changing the storage region does not automatically migrate previously existing videos.  If you need to move existing videos between regions, contact us at https://www.hyfy.io/support
