One of the core building blocks of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is that of storage, and AWS provides a wide range of storage services that allow you to architect the correct solution for your needs. Understanding what each of these services, plus what they have been designed and developed for, gives you the knowledge to implement best practices ensuring your data is stored, transmitted, and backed up in the most efficient and scalable way. This lesson will focus on each of the storage services provided through AWS training and will explain what the service is, its key features and when and why you might use the service within your own environment.
