In the previous chapter, we covered a lot about Amazon RDS and how you can leverage it to host highly scalable and fault-tolerant databases.
In this chapter, we will be exploring yet another popular and widely used AWS core service, that is, the Simple Storage Service (S3). This chapter will cover many important aspects of S3, such as its use cases, its various terms and terminologies, along with a few steps on how to use S3 to store and retrieve objects. It will also go through few simple steps using which you can archive your data using both the AWS Management Console and the AWS CLI. So, buckle up and get ready for an awesome time.
