What Is Amazon S3?
Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a cloud storage service offered by Amazon Web Services. It provides object storage through web services interfaces, such as SOAP and REST APIs. With Amazon S3, users can store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the web. The service offers high scalability, durability, availability, security and performance at low costs.
Amazon S3 enables developers to build applications that make use of internet-scale computing resources without having to manage their own infrastructure or worry about server maintenance tasks like patching or backups. It also allows for easy integration with other AWS services such as EC2 instances and CloudFront content delivery networks (CDN). Additionally, it supports versioning which helps protect against accidental overwrites or deletions of files stored in buckets. This makes it an ideal solution for storing large amounts of unstructured data such as images, videos and audio files that need to be accessed quickly over the internet.
