S3 Cloud Storage

S3 Cloud Storage

What is S3 Cloud Storage?

It’s an object-based cloud storage system which manages data as objects rather than in a hierarchy or blocks. S3 Storage is ideally suited and optimised for massive amounts of unstructured data, such as providing back end data storage used with popular social media, music streaming and file sharing services.

Why Choose S3 Cloud Storage?

Most cloud storage providers are only able to offer storage in a restricted number of locations, typically USA, EU and one or two Asian locations. Leading Edge Data Centres can offer S3 Cloud Storage via our network of data centres located in regional Australia. Our secure, reliable and performance oriented S3 compatible cloud storage solution can meet your data sovereignty needs at a cost-effective price point.

Features

Buckets

S3 Storage uses buckets (not a traditional file system) as its storage hierarchy where container relevant data is stored loosely and uncoupled in these buckets.

Access Control and Encryption

S3 Storage allows a hierarchy of user access rights. A unique feature of S3 Storage is the user or application directly handles encryption. By controlling your own encryption keys, you are always in control of your data.

Versioning

S3 Storage can support storage of multiple versions of objects saving space in the process by only recording changes between versions. Versioning is an important feature for institutions who implement data governance and retention policies.

Upload Acceleration

S3 storage can break large files up into chunks to be simultaneously transferred allowing better bandwidth utilisation as well as saving time by only retransmitting missing or broken parts of a file.

Tiered Storage

S3 Storage allows multiple tiers of storage classes with a single namespace for all objects. S3 Storage can be combined with access controls and encryption for specific services and can be used as an archival backend for block storage (legacy) systems if needed.

API

S3 Storage can be consumed on the internet directly thanks to the use of HTTP/S protocol. Buckets can be accessed using drive-letter mapping similar to common cloud storage providers, enabling ease of use for non tech savvy users .
