Storage and Content Delivery
Amazon Web Services suggests a wide variety of services to reach the storage requirements.
- Key services
- Key concepts
- Usage scenarios
|Amazon S3||With this component one can retrieve the input data sets which are involved in creating cloud architecture and output data sets also can be stored in this component that is the result of the input given.|
|Cloud Front||It is a web service; with this you can fastness in distributing the inert and active web content. For example, .html, .php files to clients|
|Amazon EBS||Amazon Elastic Block is known as block storage system of AWS. It is used to store the persistent data.|
|Amazon Glacier||It is designed to store the infrequently used data, it is also a low-cost storage service.|

Now let’s learn about these concepts in details.
Buckets and Objects :
Amazon S3 is an internet-scale records storage carrier that handles huge quantities of records and big numbers of concurrent accesses. You keep your information in bins known as buckets. You could manipulate who has permissions for every bucket. A bucket can incorporate any number of gadgets of any kind, along with HTML pages, supply, code documents, photograph documents, and encrypted statistics. The call of every bucket should be globally particular.
It is possible to cluster the objects using folders. These folders are incorporated in the key name for an object.
For example, mysite/html/default.html. protocol://domain/bucket_name/object_key protocol: http or https can be chosen as a protocol. Domain: s3.amazonnaws.com bucket_name: Name provided to the bucket object_key: The complete name for the object.
Cloud Front Distributions :
The CDN (content Delivery Network) can be built by CloudFront, so the content of your website will be available around the edge locations or from data center. The content belong to you can be stored in an origin server, like HTTP server/Amazon S3. The related URL is as below.
On the other hand, you can correlate your personal domain name with your CloudFront allocation.
Instance Store Volumes :
EC2 instants will get instant store volumes from Amazon EC2. Since the disks attached to the volumes are actually attached to the same host node as the instance the access to those volumes will be very quick. The instance store volume can be used only from a particular instance and through its lifetime.
Amazon EBS Volumes :
The NAS can be offered by Amazon EBS they work along with the EC2 instances. Subsequently attach, create and accumulate an Amazon EBS volume to instances, the instance can resemble a hard drive on your computer. At once one volume only can be attached to the instance, but it is possible to remove an Amazon EBS volume from one EC2 instance and attach to another.

Vaults and Archives:
A container for archives is known as Vaults and achieve is an object that will be saved by vaults. For example video, document, photo. Each archive must have a unique ID and also an optional explanation. If you wish to generate and remove a vault with the use of the AWS Management Console, then you should upload, download and remove archives programmatically.
