We are excited to announce two frequently requested Amazon S3 usability enhancements:
- Bucket Limit Increase: You can now increase your Amazon S3 bucket limit per AWS account. All AWS accounts have a default bucket limit of 100 buckets, and starting today you can now request additional buckets by visiting AWS Service Limits.
- Read-after-write Consistency: Amazon S3 now supports read-after-write consistency for new objects added to Amazon S3 in US Standard region. Prior to this announcement, all regions except US Standard supported read-after-write consistency for new objects uploaded to Amazon S3. With this enhancement, Amazon S3 now supports read-after-write consistency in all regions for new objects added to Amazon S3. Read-after-write consistency allows you to retrieve objects immediately after creation in Amazon S3.
You can immediately get started with these new features. For more information, please visit Bucket Limits and Restrictions and Amazon S3 Data Consistency Model.
