Overall Satisfaction with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service)

In my case, I am using Amazon S3 with the Associated Cloud Front to host all my WordPress site static content and media to avoid overloading the web hosting provider. Leveraging the combination of Amazon S3 and CloudFront provides faster access to media files, content caching, and avoids unnecessary resource drain on the web server hosting resources directly.
  • Cheaper Storage Media Files
  • Easy to Implement with WordPress Seamlessly
  • Inexpensive
  • Can be a bit complex to set up with Cloud Front for CDN Performance.
  • Files names and conventions with how it integrates with WordPress make it hard to find original files specifically since they are renamed.
  • Kept my storage limits within threshold on hosting provider.
  • Higher availability of site due to pairing with Cloudfront and reducing resource calls on site directly.
  • Files stored in the cloud with better backup management.
If you run self-hosted WordPress blogs and have a limited or small hosting plan, then the Amazon S3 Storage provides a great ROI to store your static content in the Amazon S3 Cloud. Ideal for images, video and any other static files you would have delivered on your website for viewers.
