Overall Satisfaction with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service)

At this moment it is used at the IT department level, down the road we would like to expand this usage, but we are trying to see how we can safely enable all AWS users with security and compliance in mind. At this moment it allows us to store some temporary data for different infrastructure deployments.
  • Easy to upload.
  • Easy to access.
  • Simple web interface.
  • Too many options for regular user.
  • Doesn't check centrally set policies and creates errors that do not represent the problem.
  • Ease of use.
  • Encryption.
  • Compliance.
  • It is easy to use and everyone understands it.
  • Down side is that errors are not very informative and led to some headache to IT admins.
We are an AWS shop, thus it is much easier to use with other AWS services. It may not always be the cheapest but once you are in AWS if you can decouple your apps and use this as one of your services it will certainly make developer's life easier and admin life easier.

It is great for temp infrastructure artifacts during deployment or if you are using containerized apps and Kubernetes. This would be a place to store your files. Whether those are public or private documents, it is a great location to store. Additionally, it is a great place for archives. Storing old data for a really cheap price is something that you can't get on-prem.
