    <div>You say</div>

    > The option that says: <strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>In AWS Storage Gateway, create a File gateway that enables you to store and retrieve objects in Amazon S3 using industry-standard file protocols such as Network File System (NFS) and Server Message Block (SMB) is incorrect because a File gateway does not provide you the required low-latency access to the entire dataset that the application needs.

    But AWS Docs say – https://docs.aws.amazon.com/filegateway/latest/files3/what-is-file-s3.html

    > A S3 File Gateway simplifies file storage in Amazon S3, integrates to existing applications through industry-standard file system protocols, and provides a cost-effective alternative to on-premises storage. It also provides low-latency access to data through transparent local caching.

    Therefore the File gateway should work. Since the question was about an “enterprise document management system” – a File Gateway makes more sense than a Volume gateway

    Hello seth_e,

    Thank you for the feedback on this question.

    The question asks for “you also have to ensure that these employees can access the entire dataset quickly, without sacrificing durability.”

    I understand the S3 File gateway can provide low-latency access to data, however, this is local caching only. A local cache is a pre-defined size that is used to store frequently accessed data. If you need a file that is not on the cache, it will be fetched from Amazon S3.

    Thus, we have chosen the correct answer as the Stored Volume Gateway. This option stores all data in the on-premises data center to provide quick access to the entire dataset. And it also replicates the data to Amazon S3 which improves the durability of data.

    Hope this helps.
