Description

Create your first Cloud Storage bucket using Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)

Lab Overview

Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) provides secure, durable, and highly scalable object storage. To upload data such as photos, videos and static documents, you must first create a logical storage bucket in one of the AWS regions. Then you can upload any number of objects to it. Buckets and objects are resources, and Amazon S3 provides both APIs and a web console to manage them.

Amazon S3 can be used alone or together with other AWS services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), and Amazon Glacier, as well as third-party storage repositories and gateways. Amazon S3 provides cost-effective object storage for a wide variety of use cases including web applications, content distribution, backup and archiving, disaster recovery, and big data analytics.

This Lab guides you through the bucket creation process and its first usage. The Cloud Academy Labs Engine constantly checks the Lab environment, giving you instant feedback on your work.
