Amazon S3 Storage Classes[edit]

  • Amazon S3 Standard is the default class.
  • Amazon S3 One Zone-Infrequent Access is designed for data that is not often needed but when required, needs to be accessed rapidly. Data is stored in one zone and if that zone is destroyed, all data is lost.
  • Amazon Glacier is designed for long-term storage of data that is infrequently accessed and where retrieval latency of minutes or hours is acceptable. "Glacier Deep Archive" is an alternative with a retrieval time of at least 12 hours, but 1/4th the price. It is intended as an alternative to magnetic tape libraries, and is designed for long term retention of data for 7 to 10 years.

Amazon S3 logs[edit]

Amazon S3 allows users to enable or disable logging. If enabled, the logs are stored in Amazon S3 buckets which can then be analyzed. These logs contain useful information such as:

  • Date and time of access to requested content
  • Protocol used (HTTP, FTP, etc.)
  • HTTP status codes
  • Turnaround time
  • HTTP request message


Encryption (2017) is supported in AWS S3 (default Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256bit)
