Overall Satisfaction with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service)

Everything that we need to store of data, without worry with size, or speed, we use Amazon S3. That's our safe alternative. From applications that use it to temporary keep files, to final destination of others, even to keep websites files, S3 is a great and safe alternative. It's the perfect companion to a lot of services, not only AWS.
  • Static Website Hosting
  • Files needed by applications
  • Backup
  • Default bucket limit (i think it needed to be more)
  • Graphical ACLs
  • Cheaper FTP / SFTP price
  • It's in AWS set of tools
  • It's easy to setup
  • It allows us to grow as needed
  • Out Time-to-Market lowered a lot using this tool
  • We have a new backup option
  • Central location to all data of a application
They're both great. I really don't know the differences, but both have the same basic set of features, in my opinion. But, S3 is widely know as a greater tool, safer, and much easier. Also, it's used by and compatible with a lot of applications around the world. That made us decide using S3.

Backup your environment (from dumps to local files), it is a great alternative. If you think in put your files, and know when they need to be deleted, you may use the bucket policy to automate it for you, If you need that your application receive or send some files, S3 may keep these files too.

Its less appropriate when you need speed to access files. It's not slow, but depending of the speed you need, it's not recommended, yet, cause they're always improving.
