About Amazon S3
Amazon S3 is an online storage service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It allows users to securely and scalably store and retrieve data on the internet.
The service is similar to a vast digital warehouse where you can store a variety of files, including images, videos, documents, data backups, and much more.
Many businesses and developers use Amazon S3 to store their data, host static websites, and support various applications that require reliable and scalable storage.
