Introduction to Amazon S3

Introduction to Amazon S3

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is storage service in which you can copy data from source and simultaneously move data to any target. You can use Amazon S3 to store and retrieve any amount of data at any time, from anywhere on the web. You can accomplish these tasks using the AWS Management Console web interface.
Amazon S3 stores data as objects within buckets. An object consists of a file and optionally any metadata that describes that file. To store an object in Amazon S3, you upload the file you want to store to a bucket. Buckets are the containers for objects. You can have one or more buckets. When using the AWS Management Console, you can create folders to group objects, and you can nest folders.
