Amazon S3

Anytime – and I do mean anytime – you have files of any size over, say, 50kb and they are static you should reach for S3 first. In 7 years of using the service, I have never once lost a file. There have been a total of maybe 30 minutes of downtime in 7 years, which was a DNS level issue. The speed is excellent, the availability is incredible, and there simply is no good competitor for the price.

Clarify before hand any additional charges for remote hand and arrangement/SLA for remote hand. Negotiate well on these terms as they tend to be more flexible around this. Clarify shipping and handling charges if any.

Pros

  • Nearly every web framework now has integrations with the service as an easy plug-and-play storage solution.
  • General integration is so good there are tons of third-party tools like Transmit (for mac) you can mount S3 as a remote disk for easy access, and even Amazon's own web portal for using S3 has gotten quite good.
  • It's incredibly easy to offload all the expensive bandwidth operations for your typical website or app to S3, and, assuming your services are not yet HTTP2, you even get the benefits of sharding.

  • Remote hand services often pretty responsive and good follow through
  • Shipping and handling was never an issue at Navisite facility for our hardware orders
  • Managed services were also very competent to address issues within short amount of time

Cons

  • I would like an in console file viewer instead of having to download the file to see its content
  • Speed of download has increased a lot in the past year, though still a room for improvement
  • Apart from storage, a few transactions are charged as well

  • San Jose facility power outage caused damage to company's credibility, this should not occur again being 7x24 facility and backup generator
  • Avoiding too many management changes will help create good connection with individuals for sustained harmony

Alternatives Considered

As most of our work loads and the under laying platforms are build on EMR, Spark and AWS Lambda, we did not find HDFS a suitable solution to have all of our data in. HDFS was very costly as we had to maintain data nodes only for the sole purpose of maintaining the extra storage for replication even when we did not need the extra compute power.

Return on Investment

  • Positive ROI - It's cheaper to store on S3 than any other cloud mechanism that's offered to us. S3's revenue model where they charge for what you use is also very lucrative because now you are not worried about buying the bulk of storage that you don't use.
  • Another positive is it ties in with the Amazon ecosystem. So if you have rest of your services in AWS, then it makes complete sense to use S3 so that the network latency is greatly reduced.
  • I haven't had a negative yet, so nothing to comment on that.
