Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a web service which provides storage and various interfaces for accessing data stored there.

S3 can store objects up to 5TB in size, along with 2KB of data. Objects are grouped into buckets which correspond to an Amazon Web Services account.

Buckets and objects can be created, listed and retrieved using REST and SOAP interfaces; objects can also be downloaded using HTTP GET and BitTorrent.
