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

So this video was a bit power point intensive.
Unfortunately, that was necessary
as we needed to introduce many new s three concepts
in upcoming videos. We will spend more time configuring Amazon s three
and creating our first AWS website
What is Amazon has three
Amazon simple storage service is AWS storage.
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?
A bucket is a container for objects
stored in S three.
What can I use? Amazon has 34
We can use Amazon s three for backup and archiving
static website hosting,
and many more applications.
In this video, we learned about Amazon's simple storage service. Also known as Amazon s three.
What can Amazon s three be used for?
We discussed how much data we can store next. Three,
We discussed Amazon s tree performance
Amazon as three storage classes
and we learned about Amazon s three lifecycle management.
