Help me understand Storage Gateway

From a setup perspective, you will launch a VM (is this accurate?) called the Storage/file gateway on premise and that will connect to the Storage/File gateway in AWS so you can access S3 or EBS. Is the VM simply a server that maps to S3? Ive read the documentation yet its confusing me a bit. Thank you for the help

I found a good AWS video on it for anyone needing clarification as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSJrse6jwq0

So the way it works is: In AWS you create a Storage gateway(cached in this example), set it properties (like drive size) and then copy the IP address of that Storage Gateway. In your On Prem NFS/VM you create a new drive and set the target to the IP of the Storage gateway in AWS. Now they will map to each other and you will have access to those file
