Creating and Configuring an S3 Lifecycle Policy

A great way to reduce your expenses in AWS and achieve cost optimization is by optimizing your storage. You can create lifecycle rules to help transition your data to meet the actual usage needs of accessing that data, which will not only optimize your storage but also save you money. In this lab, we will create an S3 bucket, upload an object, and then create and configure an S3 lifecycle rule.
