Configure Amazon S3 storage provider
You can use Amazon S3 Storage provider to persist blob data in more cost-efficient compared to the default database storage. You can also configure this provider in Sitefinity.
To configure the Amazon S3 blob storage provider, follow the procedure described in Sitefinity GitHub » Amazon S3 provider.
NOTE: The storage provider is decoupled from the instance where Sitefinity is running. This way, you can use it even if you have not installed Sitefinity on Amazon.

- Save your changes.
NOTE: Make sure that your index is visible to Sitefinity. To do this, go to your search domain, select Access Policies, and configure the domain visibility.
IMPORTANT: Once you create an index, to use it, you need to wait until the index is initialized in Amazon.
If you want to reindex an Amazon search index in Sitefinity, first you need to delete the index from Amazon before reindex. The reason for this is that Amazon's delete index operation may take several minutes.
