Amazon S3 Cloud Storage

The Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is a cloud-based solution for storing data files or hosting static websites.

It is particularly well suited to data backup applications, due to the very low storage costs of Amazon Glacier. Glacier is optimised for long term storage of data files that rarely (if ever) need to be retrieved.

Amazon S3 has a highly configurable security model that gives you full control over who can access to your data. This makes it ideal for sharing large data files with your business partners and customers.

Amazon S3 can also be used to host static websites, although in most cases we would recommend Rackspace Cloud Files as a better option for cloud-based static website hosting.

Like Rackspace Cloud Files, Amazon S3 is fully integrated into the RADsite CMS. Our CMS allows you to host the static part of your website on a cloud hosting solution, and the dynamic part on a conventional server or virutal server. For example, while most of the www.radsite.co.uk website is hosted on a virtual server, this page is part of the s3.radsite.co.uk subdomain which is hosted on the Amazon S3 Cloud.
