Description

AWS S3 is one of the most fundamental services offered by Amazon. S3 is also used by several other AWS services as well as Amazon's own websites. The securing, auditing, versioning, automating, and optimizing cost for S3 can be a challenge for engineers and architects who are new to AWS. In this course, Implementing Amazon S3 Storage on AWS, you will gain the ability to get the most out of your Amazon S3 service. First, you will learn how to create buckets, upload objects to the storage class matching your need and budget, and retrieve them. Next, you will discover how to apply the recommended security practices to your S3 buckets and audit access to them. Finally, you will explore how to work with multiple object versions, archive cold data in S3 Glacier, and configure life-cycle rules to automatically save big on your S3 costs. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Amazon S3 needed to use it as your main cloud-based storage option.
