In this video, we will learn about Amazon
00:03
simple storage service,
00:05
also known as Amazon s three.
00:08
We will learn what can Amazon as three be used for?
00:12
How much data can restore in this three
00:15
Amazon history performance.
00:21
Amazon s three storage classes
00:24
and Amazon has three lifecycle management.
00:30
So what is Amazon s three?
00:34
Amazon s three
00:36
stands for Amazon's simple storage service
00:40
is object storage.
00:42
This was one of the very first service is offered by a W S.
00:47
It is built to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the World Wide Web.
00:53
Amazon actually refers to it
00:55
as storage for the Internet.
00:58
It's secure,
01:00
highly durable,
01:00
scalable
01:03
and available data storage.
01:07
And it's available at a relatively very low cost.
01:11
It could be used alone
01:15
or combined with other AWS. Service is
01:19
so what can Amazon is to be used for?
01:22
Amazon S three has a simple Web service interface.
01:26
With the Web service, we can easily build applications that rely on Internet story.
01:33
We can use s3 for backup in archiving
01:37
static website hosting,
01:38
disaster recovery
01:41
and constant storage.
01:42
How much data can we store in this? Three.
01:45
An unlimited volume of data can be stored in this three
01:49
individual s three objects can range in size from 0 to 5 terabytes.
01:56
The largest file that could be uploaded in a single put
02:00
is five gigabytes.
02:01
Anything larger than 100 megabytes should be done using the AWS multipart upload. Feature
02:08
Amazon s three performance.
02:12
Accessing Amazon s tree from within the same region is very fast.
02:17
S3 is optimized
02:20
to mitigate most server side Leighton. See,
02:23
Amazon S3 is built to support a virtually unlimited number of web applications.
02:31
If S three receives multiple requests
02:35
from multiple applications simultaneously,
02:38
then the automatic scaling and aggregate
02:40
or combined throughput well typically far outperform
02:46
most standalone servers or clusters.
02:49
Amazon s three concepts.
02:52
Amazon uses the concept of buckets.
02:55
A bucket is a container for objects stored in this three
03:00
buckets can be created from the console
03:02
command line interface
03:05
or programmatically using the AWS software development kit.
03:10
By default, we can create up to 100 buckets.
03:15
There is no limit on how many objects that we can store in a bucket.
03:21
We can associate each bucket with an access control policy.
03:25
This policy will control the creation deletion
03:30
and numerous shin of objects within our bucket.
03:34
So Amazon s three is a simple key. Value store
03:38
is designed to store as many objects as we want.
03:42
A key is the name that were assigned to an object.
03:46
We used the object key to retrieve the object in our bucket
03:52
within a bucket. A key and version I d uniquely identify an object.
04:00
The version i d is a string that Amazon s three generates when we add an object to our bucket.
04:08
A value is the content that we're storing.
04:12
An object value can be any sequence of bites.
04:15
Objects can range in size from 0 to 5 terabytes, as we mentioned earlier
04:20
made a data
04:23
is a set of name value pairs that we can use to store information about our object.
04:30
We can assign metadata, also known as user defined metadata toe objects in Amazon as three
04:38
Amazon s three also assigns system made a data toe are objects that it uses for management purposes.
04:46
Amazon, as three supports access control, lis
04:49
bucket policies
04:50
and user based access control
04:55
as three scalability, durability and availability.
05:00
Amazon s three storage is designed for
05:03
99.9. Well, I'm not going to say all the nines, but it's commonly referred to as 11 nines of data durability.
05:15
Amazon as three can make this claim
05:17
because our data is stored across multiple systems within our selected geographical region.
05:24
S three has built in Eric Correction
05:27
and there are no single point of failure.
05:30
Our data can be protected from unintended overwrites or deletions using version ing.
05:36
We can also enable M f a multi factor authentication delete on a bucket
05:44
which would require two types of off indication to delete an object.
05:48
Amazon as three storage classes.
05:51
Amazon s three offers a variety of storage classes that are designed for different use cases
05:58
as three standard is used for general purpose storage of frequently access data.
06:03
S three intelligent hearing is for data that has unknown or changing access patterns.
06:12
S three standard infrequent access
06:16
and s three one's own infrequent access is used for less frequently access data.
06:24
Amazon as three Glacier
06:26
and Amazon s three Glacier Deep archive
06:30
are used for long term data archiving
06:33
performance across the S three storage classes.
06:38
This slide provides a comparison of performance among the different storage classes.
06:43
As you can see they all boast of providing 11 nines of durability
06:47
object lifecycle management.
06:50
We can configure object lifecycle management to assist us with storing our objects cost effectively.
06:57
A life cycle configuration is a set of rules and actions that we define
07:02
That s three then applies to a group of objects.
07:06
There are two types of actions
07:10
transition actions
07:11
which defined win objects, transition to another storage class
07:15
expiration actions
07:18
which define win objects expire
07:20
Amazon s three deletes expired objects on our behalf
07:27
AWS storage pricing for up to date storage breakdown.

07:42
So this video was a bit power point intensive.
07:45
Unfortunately, that was necessary
07:47
as we needed to introduce many new s three concepts
07:50
in upcoming videos. We will spend more time configuring Amazon s three
07:57
and creating our first AWS website
08:01
learning shape.
08:03
What is Amazon has three
08:07
Amazon simple storage service is AWS storage.
08:11
It has a simple web service is interface that we can use to store and retrieve almost any amount of data. What is an S three bucket?
08:24
A bucket is a container for objects
08:28
stored in S three.
08:30
What can I use? Amazon has 34
08:35
We can use Amazon s three for backup and archiving
08:37
static website hosting,
08:39
disaster recovery,
08:41
content storage
08:43
and many more applications.
08:48
In this video, we learned about Amazon's simple storage service. Also known as Amazon s three.
08:54
We learned
08:56
What can Amazon s three be used for?
08:58
We discussed how much data we can store next. Three,
09:03
We discussed Amazon s tree performance
09:07
Amazon as three storage classes
09:11
and we learned about Amazon s three lifecycle management.
