Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
Amazon S3 has a simple web-services interface where you can store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives developers access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of websites. The goal is to maximize benefits of scale and pass those benefits on to developers.
This plugin uses the Amazon S3 application programming interface (API) that lets developers choose where their objects are stored on the Amazon cloud. Using this secure API, your application is automatically scaled up and down as needed. This integration allows ElectricFlow to manage S3 buckets and objects.
The plugin interacts with S3 data by using AWS Java SDK to perform the following tasks:
- Create configurations with connection information.
- Create buckets and folders.
- Store objects in existing buckets and folders.
- Download objects or entire folders.
- List all the buckets and folders.
