Amazon S3 Advanced Features

The Simple Storage Service (S3) from Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been established as the standard interface for object storage and has been adopted as the de facto by the storage industry. The Amazon S3 API contains many advanced features that enterprises expect in every storage platform. Join us in this webinar to look at how these features are implemented and how object storage solution providers can extend the S3 API to add even more value to on-premises deployments. In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Versioning — the ability to retain a historical record of object updates
  • Tiering and ILM — moving object data through a data lifecycle
  • Replication — protecting data across multiple data centres/regions
  • Logging and Billing — tracking and charging for resource usage.
