- Amazon S3 data is stored in buckets.
- It’s a folder where you can read, write and delete objects from.
- You can store multiple objects in the bucket, but each object is limited to 5 TB.
- You can assign granular permissions to the different users, like giving them access for Create, Retrieve and Delete permissions to your buckets and files under them.
