Amazon S3 Storage Services

Amazon S3 Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is cloud storage for Internet and it is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Amazon S3 has a simple web-service interface and can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the web at any time. It gives developer access to the same highly reliable, scalable, secure, fast, inexpensive infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites.

Since objects are accessible by unmodified HTTP clients, Amazon S3 can be used to replace significant existing (static) web hosting infrastructure. Now it is possible to host an entire website on Amazon S3. The Amazon AWS Authentication allows the bucket owner to create an authenticated URL with time-bounded validity.

Amazon S3 provides highly durable and available cloud storage for contents ranging from web applications to media files. This allows you to offload your entire storage infrastructure onto the cloud. Either you can distribute your content directly from Amazon S3 or use Amazon S3 as an origin store for pushing content to your Amazon CloudFront edge locations. Amazon S3 provides Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) feature which provides accessibility to others from different locations. RRS is a low-cost solution for storing and sharing the contents. Also Amazon S3’s Versioning capability provides even further protection for stored data.

Amazon S3 was built to fulfill the following design requirements

  • Amazon s3 was built to provide an infrastructure that allows the user to maintain total control, over who has access to their data. Customers must be at ease while their data is in transit or at rest.
  • The Stored data is reliable, there can be no failure, and if at all any failures are there it will be repaired by the system without any downtime.
  • Amazon S3 can scale in terms of storage, request rate, and users to support an unlimited number of web-scale applications. It uses scaling as an advantage: Adding nodes to the system increases, its availability, speed, throughput, capacity, and robustness.
  • Amazon S3 is also fast enough to support high-performance applications.
  • Amazon S3 is built from inexpensive commodity hardware components. All hardware will eventually fail and this must not affect the overall system. It must be hardware-agnostic, so that savings can be captured as Amazon continues to drive down infrastructure costs.
  • Building highly scalable, reliable, fast, and inexpensive cloud storage is difficult. Doing so, in a way to make it easy to use for any application, anywhere, is even more difficult. Amazon S3 overcomes this difficulty and does both.
