What is AWS S3?
Amazon Simple Storage Service or AWS S3 is a service offered by Amazon Web Services that provides object storage through a web service interface. Amazon S3 can be employed to store any type of object, which allows for uses like storage for Internet applications, backup and recovery, disaster recovery, data archives, data lakes for analytics, and hybrid cloud storage. The basic storage units of Amazon S3 are objects which are organized into buckets. Each object is identified by a unique, user-assigned key.
