So yet another chapter and yet another awesome AWS Service walkthrough comes to an end! Let's take a quick flashback into the things we've learned so far.

First off, we started by learning what exactly Amazon S3 is, along with the various storage class options provided with it. Next, we saw how easy and effortless it is to create buckets, upload objects into them, and view them. We even tried out a simple CLI tool called as S3CMD for syncing log files from your instances over to an S3 bucket. Toward the end, you even learned how to host static websites on S3 and enable lifecycle management on objects as well.

In the next and final chapter, you will be learning a bit more about a few key AWS services, such as Route53 and CloudFront, along with a quick look at some of the newer AWS service offerings, such as Amazon EFS and ECS, so stay tuned!
