Everything you need to know about the S3 Object Storage Service and S3 API compatibility

On-Demand Webinar


Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) has set the bar for cloud storage with the S3 API rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for object storage platforms. 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 webinar, we will discuss:

  • What the S3 API actually is, and how it has become a standard in the industry.
  • How S3 offers a wealth of security features to meet access and compliance requirements
  • The advanced features of S3, including encryption, archiving and data protection.
  • How object solutions are supporting S3 today
