Overall Satisfaction with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service)

Amazon S3 is heavily used in our company by the development department to store short and long terms files (audio, video, photos, etc) with different policies in the cloud. We trust AWS services, security and infrastructure. S3 is used in conjunction with many other AWS services. For example: with Lambda to perform operations when a file is uploaded, with Cloudwatch to save logs, with Cloudront to serve as CDN and cache, to store files for the web and mobile app, to store static content for the website, etc.
  • store any kind of file
  • store static content for websites
  • store logs and backups
  • set up different policies
  • It still needs to integrate with different ecosystems
  • They need to improve the search. They should offer more options.
  • Positive: easy to integrate to have the app up and running quickly with S3 integrated
  • Negative: how to handle the permissions and the UI

Amazon S3 is well suited for hosting any type of object. Highly recommended if already using with any other AWS service since integration becomes easier. It is good for any organization that has a dedicated IT Department. Not recommended if the company does not have a team with experience in AWS services that monitors it since it could end up being a mess or expensive.
