Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is storage for the Internet. Through the use of pioneering techniques in distributed computing, developers are able to durably store their data on Amazon's proven computing infrastructure to achieve virtually limitless storage capacity at minimal cost. Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast, inexpensive infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
Our managers are passionate about the incredible opportunity that Amazon S3 presents and about cloud computing, in general. Our team is responsible for building the core features data lifecycle workflows, cross region replication, versioning, multi-part upload and static website hosting. The services we build and operate grow at an incredible rate, driven by usage from customers across 190 countries..
