Is the "aws s3 mv --recursive" command atomic?


I have a customer who would like a definitive answer, whether the mv command is atomic.

I.e. either all objects are moved or none.

No, it's not. Each object transfer is atomic. That is, either a whole file is transferred, or none of it is. But the directory structure is not atomic and a failure can cause mv to fail mid-way.
