Amazon S3 stands for Amazon Simple Storage Service. This is storage for the internet. Amazon S3 has a simple web services interface which is used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. Amazon S3 is based on CDN(Content Delivery Network), content exists as multiple copies on strategically dispersed servers. CDN management dynamically calculates which server is located nearest to the requesting client and delivers content based on those calculations. This not only eliminates the distance that content travels but also reduces the number of hops a data packet must make. The result is less packet loss, optimized bandwidth and faster performance, which minimizes timeouts, latency, and jitter while improving overall user experience.
