Overall Satisfaction with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service)

The most popular IaaS service out there, Amazon S3 offers good infrastructure, speeds, API support, command line interface and also a great user interface for web access. We are using AWS services to support our business and hosting all the datasets on S3. S3 is typically used to upload and download content, and storing application-specific data. Also, this cloud-based service is HIPAA compliance, so we can store sensitive dataset without any compliance issues and security concerns. Enterprises can keep data secure, processes compliant and teams on the same page.
  • Data management and storage
  • Quick upload, download and move on EC2 instance
  • Security and HIPAA compliance
  • Folder sharing with multi level permission
  • APIs and libraries to access data through any programming language
  • Searching for the document is very hard, it allows only prefix to search the files.
  • Also, downloads require more than one click which irritates frequent users.
  • Price compared to service is a little bit high, still not a major concern.
  • Security and HIPAA Compliance
  • Speed up business services and applications
  • ROI within a year, considering large scale applications
Amazon S3 comes with all other services of AWS, all other services are very quick and secure with S3 storage, which is the best option for any application. Again, compared to other services like Azure or GCP, AWS provides more configuration and functions to host multi nature services. If we consider charges, then it only charges what you used and how frequently you place the data transfer. Also, support form the AWS team is excellent for training and to solve any kind of issues.
Amazon S3 is a storage infrastructure under the umbrella of AWS. If you host any service that requires a quick and secure data transfer then S3 is the best solution. Also, in the case of multiprogramming language applications, S3 is the best option regarding compatibility with multiple programming languages. But if your requirement is just to store the dataset by manual effort and you want to share with others without the frequent requirement of data uploads and downloads, then Google Drive is better solution compare to S3.
