The following table describes the new feature in this release.
Large Object Support
Amazon S3 has increased the maximum size of an object you can store in an S3 bucket from 5 GB to 5 TB.
You can use AWS Management Console to upload large objects of up to 5 TB in size. For more information, go to Uploading Objects in to Amazon S3 in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Console User Guide.
If you are using the REST API you can upload objects of up to 5 GB size in a single PUT operation. For larger objects, you must use the Multipart Upload REST API to upload objects in parts.
You can use the AWS SDKs to upload these large objects. The updated Multipart Upload API support in AWS SDKs allows you to upload up to 5 TB objects using the Java, .NET and the PHP SDKs.
For more information and examples of using Multipart Uploads, go to Uploading Objects Using Multipart Upload. For more information on working with Amazon S3 objects, go to Working with Amazon S3 Objects in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
