This new S3 storage tier gives customers flexibility to tailor their S3 storage on Outposts to meet the demands of their workloads.
To start using S3 on Outposts, visit the AWS Outposts Management Console to order an Outposts configuration that includes your desired S3 storage capacity. You then use the AWS console or S3 SDK, or CLI to create buckets and S3 Access Points on your Outposts.
