Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), an object storage service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS), celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2021. In commemoration of this, AWS announced that it will make a major update to Amazon S3.
Amazon S3 is an unlimited object storage service, rolled out as the first AWS service generally available on March 14, 2006. Amazon S3 has gained popularity in that it can store and retrieve data anytime, anywhere with a simple service interface. From the beginning, the Amazon S3 concept recognized that it was a simple service, and the easy-to-understand plan that you can use 50GB of durable Stories for just a dollar was also highly evaluated.
In a blog article announcing the Amazon S3 rollout, AWS says that SOAP and REST interfaces allow developers to easily store any number of blocks of data in S3. Since each block is protected by an access control list, the developer explains that the necessary data can be kept private, shared for reading, or shared for reading or writing.
In addition, the high durability of 99.9999999999% is one of the great features of the Amazon S3. Also known as 119 according to AWS, this durability has an average probability that if 10,000 objects are stored in Amazon S3, one of them will be destroyed, on average, once every 10 million years. AWS explains that you don’t have to worry about backup and scaling device failures, fires, thefts, meteorites, earthquakes, baby pranks, and just store your data on S3.
According to AWS, Amazon S3 currently stores over 100 trillion objects and regularly peaks at tens of millions of requests per second. The number of 100 trillion is too large, but for example, it is explained that it is 13,000 times the world’s population or 50 times the total number of galaxies in the universe.
In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Amazon S3 rollout, AWS held a four-day AWS Pi Week online event from March 15-18, 2021, with important features for system versioning and storage class storage management secure data movement. It announced that it will make an announcement about the addition. Related information can be found here.
