Amazon S3 is excited to announce an increase in the maximum size of an object from 5 gigabytes to 5 terabytes. You can now easily store and reference high resolution videos, large backup files, scientific instrument data or other large datasets as single objects. The AWS SDKs, the Amazon S3 Management Console, and the AWS Import/Export service have all added support for objects up to 5 terabytes in size. For more information on uploading large objects into Amazon S3, review the Amazon S3 Developer Guide.
