The AWS SDK for PHP 2 is a completely re-written SDK for PHP developers. It provides a library, code samples, and documentation for developers to build PHP applications that tap into the cost-effective, scalable, and reliable AWS cloud.
With the AWS SDK for PHP 2, developers get started in minutes using AWS infrastructure services, including Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Glacier, and Amazon CloudFront.
PHP developers will find both versions of the AWS SDK for PHP familiar and easy to use. However, the AWS SDK for PHP 2 will, over time, replace the initial SDK and brings important advantages such as:

Practical examples for how to use the library to build applications.
The AWS SDK for PHP supports AWS infrastructure products, including:
