La Nacion, Microsoft, and SmugMug represent the breadth of companies choosing to use the web scale storage offered by Amazon S3. Global enterprises like Microsoft are using Amazon S3 to dramatically reduce their storage costs without compromising scale or reliability. On the opposite end of the spectrum, small businesses that depend on storage, such as SmugMug, are using Amazon S3’s benefits of scale and cost-efficiency that were previously only available to large companies. Amazon continues to use Amazon S3 for its own business as well, recently launching new digital initiatives that store and retrieve large data files using Amazon S3.
