        Amazon Glacier
        In order to keep costs low, Amazon Glacier is optimized for data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval times of several hours are suitable. With Amazon Glacier, customers can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month, a significant savings compared to on-premises solutions.
        Amazon EBS
        Amazon EBS volumes are network-attached, and persist independently from the life of an instance. Amazon EBS provides highly available, highly reliable, predictable storage volumes that can be attached to a running Amazon EC2 instance and exposed as a device within the instance. Amazon EBS is particularly suited for applications that require a database, file system, or access to raw block level storage.
        Amazon EC2
        It is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
        Google Drive
        The Drive SDK gives you a group of APIs along with client libraries, language-specific examples, and documentation to help you develop apps that integrate with Drive. The core functionality of Drive apps is to download and upload files in Google Drive. However, the Drive SDK provides a lot more than just storage.
        Microsoft Azure
        Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any language, tool or framework. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment.

        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.
