  • Data is stored as objects within buckets; every object in Amazon S3 is stored in a bucket
  • An object consists of a file and metadata
  • Upload file to store in a bucket
  • Metadata is included when you upload data
  • Buckets are the containers for objects

The first step is to create a bucket. When creating a bucket:

  • The name must be unique across all existing bucket names in Amazon S3
  • You cannot change the name
  • Choose a bucket name that's reflective of the objects inside the bucket
