Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), provides developers and IT teams with secure, durable, highly-scalable object storage.

Now, Amazon S3 can send event notifications to trigger workflows or take other actions when objects are uploaded to Amazon S3. Notification messages can be sent through either Amazon SNS or Amazon SQS, or delivered directly to AWS Lambda to trigger AWS Lambda functions. For example, you could use Amazon S3 event notifications to trigger transcoding of media files when they are uploaded, processing of data files when they become available, or synchronization of Amazon S3 objects with other data stores.
