This lab walks you through the steps to create an S3 pre-sign URL. Here you will be creating an S3 bucket, uploading objects, and using CloudShell you will create a short-lived URL i.e. pre sign URL.
Duration: 45 minutes
AWS Region: US East (N. Virginia) us-east-1
S3 stands for Simple Storage Service.
It provides object storage through a web service interface.
Each object is stored as a file with its metadata included and is given an ID number.
Objects uploaded to S3 are stored in containers called “Buckets”, whose names are globally unique. They organize the Amazon S3 namespace at the highest level.
These buckets are region-specific.
You can assign permissions to these buckets to provide or restrict data transactions.
Applications use this ID number to access an object.
Developers can access an object via a REST API.
S3 supports the upload of objects.
It uses the same scalable storage infrastructure that Amazon.com uses to run its global e-commerce network.
It's designed for storing online backup and archiving of data and applications on AWS.
Storage classes provided are:
Standard_IA i.e., Standard Infrequent Access
RRS i.e., Reduced Redundancy Storage (Not recommended by AWS)
Data access is provided through the S3 Console.
Data stored can be either Public or Private based on user requirements.
Data stored can be encrypted.
We can define life-cycle policies which can help in the automation of data transfer, retention, and deletion.
Amazon Athena can be used to "query" S3 data.
