- Simple Storage Service (S3)

Introducing S3

AWS provides a highly-performant storage layer called S3, which can be used to host individual files for websites, store large files for data processing, and even host thousands or millions of files for building data lakes. For now, our use case will be storing an individual zip file, which we’ll use to deploy new Lambda functions. However, there are many broader use cases, and many companies use S3 as their initial endpoint for data ingestion in data platforms.
