A Simple Cloud Object Storage
Comments: Amazon S3 helps to setup the industry level infrastructure with no big investment and do not require the long term commitment as we can buy the storage space on hourly wages. The different storage classes help us to remain within the budget.
Pros: Amazon S3 is a simple cloud based object storage. The different storage classes are designed to manage the data as per the requirements of the objects. The Intelligent S3 Tiering upgrade or downgrade the storage class based on the access patterns of the object to enhance the availability and durability. The S3 cross region replication helps in replication of the S3 objects in other regions. The multi-factor authentication delete on S3 bucket is really a life saver feature to protect from accidental deletion of objects.
Cons: Amazon S3 is not as simple as its name, the objects locks and versioning features are amazing but not easy as the learning curves sharp. The Storage monitoring provides limited number of notifications under the free tier.

S3 - Low cost cloud storage and best for static content
Comments: We use S3 with Athena to parse data we receive from our customers. Using S3 and Athena, we were able to build a model which can automatically populate a set of tables from the CSV files.
Pros: Simple idea, so easy that any one who uses a PC can easily understand the buckets, navigation, sharing of content. Behind the scenes there will seamless redundancy, 99.9999999% availability and so on. Best of all it is not expensive
Cons: Literally nothing. The cost is cheap and we cannot complain about that. Ideal for static website content where you dont even have to spin up an Application server.

Amazon S3 – The best collecting information platform
Comments: Overall, Amazon S3 is amazing software if you are looking to input a large amount of data in storage and be perfectly secure that your files won’t be used anywhere or by any chance deleted by mistake. The software was tested and there are a lot of satisfied customers that are using Amazon S3. Plus it’s not that expensive to use. Everyone can afford it.
Pros: Amazon S3 is an amazing software tool that provides data storing and keeps the data intact. You can input a lot of data into Amazon S3 without any problem. You can add everything starting from some spreadsheets, pdf, and finishing with some large size images and videos. The data will be one hundred percent safe and no one can ever use it except you. This is a very reliable and inexpensive tool to use. This is the main reason why I like this software. Because of the security settings that they have and a large amount of data than you can enter without any restrictions.
Cons: The one disadvantage that Amazon S3 has it’s the interface. It works very slow and sometimes if you are uploading a bigger amount of files that might take a while. Also, some settings like CLI are a bit complicated to use. One more thing that I dislike is that there is no way to rename a folder in Amazon S3. You will need to copy all of the files and then paste them into a new folder that you will have to make and then delete the old folder. It’s just a waste of time doing all this when you can simply rename the folder, but you have to do it.

Comments: Overall, S3 is a great provider for storage solutions. You just need to watch the bills and see how you can keep them in check.
Pros: It is true that AWS is a juggernaut in the industry. This is the reason I used them as my primary offsite backup repository. Many popular applications like Backup Exec integrate very nicely with S3. There is tons of documentation out there for most applications on how to use S3 with their products. The free trials for the first year are nice too.
Cons: I kept noticing that my data pool was getting larger and larger due to the types of devices I was backing up. Amazon "micro" charges for everything and my bill started to grow exponentially. You are charged for data coming in, out, at rest, long term storage, not stored long enough, lists, etc. This started to become unwieldy. Their charges are not high but in my case they just grew too much so I had to switch solutions.

Continues to Grow
Comments: Very storng overall; the experience we've had has been solid & continually enhanced
Pros: In the time we have used it, it seems like a startup process & has quickly evolved into a full service process
Cons: the good and not so good of constantly enhancing this is the change management you have to oversee with your employees
