Amazon S3 announces Multi-Object Delete

Posted on: Dec 7, 2011

We are excited to announce Multi-Object Delete, a new Amazon S3 feature that allows you to delete up to 1,000 objects with a single request. This speeds up your deletes by reducing the number of request roundtrips between your application and Amazon S3. You can use this feature to remove large numbers of objects from Amazon S3 more quickly than using multiple individual DELETE requests.

Multi-Object Delete is immediately available in all Amazon S3 Regions free of charge. This feature is supported in both the Amazon S3 API and the AWS SDKs. To learn more about Multi-Object Delete and get started today, please visit the Amazon S3 Developer Guide. To learn more about Amazon S3, please visit the Amazon S3 detail page at:
