AWS provides you with S3 as the object storage, where you can store your object files from 1 KB to 5 TB in size at a low cost. It's highly secure, durable, and scalable, and has unlimited capacity. It allows concurrent read/write access to objects by separate clients and applications. You can store any type of file in AWS S3 storage.

- Reduced Redundancy Storage: This is suitable when we have less critical data that is persistent in nature.
- Infrequent Access (IA): This is suitable when you have durable data with nonfrequent access. You can opt for Glacier. However, in Glacier you have a very long retrieval time. So, S3 IA becomes a...
