What is S3 Compatible Storage?
Data is growing faster than ever before and most of that data is unstructured: video, email, files, data backups, surveillance streams, genomics and more. Object Storage systems are designed for this type of data at petabyte scale.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER
Choosing an Object Storage Solution
Amazon Web Services and S3 Compatible Storage
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has emerged as the dominant service in public cloud computing. The AWS S3 (Simple Storage Service) has grown to become the largest and most popular public cloud storage service. As a result, it has been embraced by developers of custom and ISV applications as the de-facto standard object storage API for storing unstructured data in the cloud.
The Amazon S3 interface has evolved over the years to become a very robust data management interface. Unlike traditional file system interfaces, it provides application developers a means to control data through a rich API set.
S3 Compatible Storage is a storage solution that allows access to and management of the data it stores over an S3 compliant interface.
