What is S3 object storage?

S3 object storgae also know as S3 compatible storage is a shortening for Simple Storage Service and is developed by AWS. Instead of organizing files in a directories, object storage systems store files in containers often called as buckets and use unique IDs to retrieve them. It is simple and quick to set up and compatible with thousands of softwares and storage systems.

What type of storage is S3 used for?

Let us say that you have a backup of your workload and are runing out of diskspace, then you can utilize S3 storage for a way to move older infrequent data to a S3 bucket and free up space. The same principal goes for a NAS (file storage). Another case is that you want to archive files and object away from your expensive primary storage. Container services or applications is also a usecase for S3 Storage. 

How does S3 storage work?

S3 compatible object storage means that the service talks with the S3-API as language, applications that supports S3 API can utilize this service. User gets a dedicatet storage pool (namespace) and within the namespace the user creates buckets that is a form of a folder. Each bucket has its own policy and are controlled by the bucket creator. When files are upploaded the associated permissions that are set to the bucket controlles who can and cannot access them later on. For example. If a policy is set that objectuser1 has read-only all requests with this credential can only list and se objects withing the specific bucket. Another example is that we can set that only users with IP nr x.x.x.x is allowed access, etc.
