Article Summary

AWS S3 (Amazon Simple Storage Service) is a scalable cloud storage service provided by Amazon Web Services. It allows businesses and developers to store and retrieve large amounts of data in a secure and highly available manner, providing durable object storage for a wide range of use cases such as backup and restore, data archiving, content distribution, and data analytics.
