  • Announcing Amazon S3 – Simple Storage Service

    Welcome to a special edition of the Amazon Web Services Newsletter!

    We’re very excited to announce our latest web service: Amazon S3 – Simple Storage Service. Read on to learn how you can take advantage of Amazon’s infrastructure to build robust and innovative applications on top of Amazon S3.

    Announcing Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)

    Amazon S3 is storage for the internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. 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, fast, inexpensive data storage 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.
