Amazon S3 is the most commonly used managed storage solution in AWS. It provides object storage in a highly scalable and secure way. AWS guarantees 11 9s for its durability. Objects stored in S3 are shared access objects; shared meaning they can be accessed by different clients at the same time.
S3 provides low latency for data, and it has high throughput (able to move data in and out of S3 quickly). S3 is highly available, durable, and can encrypt data. S3 provides access management, lifecycle management, and the ability to query-in-place (no need to move to a data lake). Static website hosting is another very popular feature of S3.
