Many vendors claim compatibility with S3, however with the depth of features the API offers, few actually provide the level of support many IT organisations need. In this primer webinar, we will provide an introduction to the S3 API and explain:

- What the S3 API is and how it is used to store/retrieve data from the public cloud
- How developers and users can interact with S3
