      Insanely low prices, quite easy to use, and they're fast. Plus they provide great support. And they're integrated with other AWS services, like CloudFront.

      Seriously, this is the best service of it's kind out there.

      We store the software components that CloudRepo stores for its customers here for the following reasons:

      • Data is Encrypted at Rest
      • Data is stored across multiple physical locations
      • Pricing is competitive
      • Reliability is industry leading and our customers need to be able to access their data at all times list text here

      In October 2008 we moved to using scribe (now a custom branch), which has served us very well over the past 5+ years that we’ve been using it. We take the logs scribe aggregates and move them into Amazon S3 for storage, which makes using EMR on AWS seamless.

      S3 serves as zero-knowledge temporary storage. Files are encrypted in the browser before being uploaded in chunks to S3. When the target recipient downloads them the chunks are reassembled and decrypted in the browser. Files expire after a week and the encrypted chunks are permanently deleted from S3.

      Since we generate a static website for our website, AWS S3 provides hosting for us so that we don't have to run our own servers just to serve up static content.

      The pricing is great as you only pay for what you use.

      This object storage is always evolving and getting harder to explain. We use it for 1) hosting every static websites, 2) datalake to store every transaction and 3) query with Athena / S3 Select.

      대부분의 EC2 의 스토리지는 EBS 를 마운트해서 사용하고 있습니다. 특히 데이터베이스 서버들의 경우 주기적으로 스냅샷을 생성하여 손쉽게 백업 관리를 진행하고 있습니다.
