In this video, you will learn about the storage classes that the S3 service offers. Specifically, you will learn about the differences in durability, availability, and cost when it comes to different storage classes and the potential purposes those classes serve. This knowledge will help you to develop cost-effective applications that take advantage of the appropriate storage classes for your data. By the end of this video, you should be able to identify the purposes of different storage classes and understand how you can migrate an S3 object from one storage class to another.
Amazon S3 now has a new Intelligent Tiering Storage Class: This storage class will automatically store objects between two access tiers (FREQUENT ACCESS and INFREQUENT ACCESS) based on how you access your objects.
