Storage of Objects in AWS S3

AWS S3 buckets

In S3, you can create folders inside a bucket to store your data objects. These logical storage objects separated each other with the unique key within a bucket. Here is how to create a bucket in AWS. Each AWS user account has permission to create up to 100 buckets.

  • It is an infrastructure to store and retrieve data objects based on configuration. It scales when you add more data objects automatically. There won’t be any configuration changes from the user’s end.

Static web-hosting

  • In the S3 bucket, you can store static code. Which helps host static HTML websites easily.


  • It is a pay-as-you-go service. So for small organizations, it is cost-effective.
