Performance, scalability,
availability and durability

Storage space can scale up and down according to the requirements at a time, without initial costs or unpleasant resource approval cycles. Amazon S3 is built for 99.999999999% (11 of 9) – date durability. This happens because it automatically creates and stores copies of all S3 objects on multiple systems simultaneously. Data is available when needed and protected from physical malfunctions, errors or threats.

AWS also provides support for many types of audit with the ability to monitor requests for access to resources saved in S3.

Management tools
for granular data control

Classification, administration and reporting of data can be done using the S3 Storage Class Analysis to analyze access patterns. S3 Lifecycle policies for transferring objects in lower cost classes. S3 Cross-Region Replication for replicating data in other regions. S3 Object Lock to apply retention data to objects and protect them from being deleted, or S3 Inventory for more visibility over saved data – their metadata or statusus encryption. S3 Batch Operations can be used to change object properties or various storage management tasks for billions of objects. Since the Amazon S3 works with AWS Lambda, the activities can be logged, can define alerts and automate workflows without additional infrastructure.
