Introduction to Amazon S3

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is storage service in which you can copy data from source and simultaneously move data to any target. You can use Amazon S3 to transfer the files from a list of configured source connections to an Amazon S3 target. You can accomplish the tasks using the AWS Management Console web interface.
Amazon S3 stores data as objects within buckets. An object consists of a file and optionally any metadata that describes that file. Buckets are the containers for objects. You can have one or more buckets. When using the AWS Management Console, you can create folders to group objects and nest folders.
