How to Store Data In AWS S3?

As we had learned earlier, S3 is object-based Storage. So In S3, A Objects consist of the following:

  • Key: It is simply the name of the object. The name can be anything but it should be unique.
  • Value: It is simply the data inside a file which is made up of a sequence of bytes.
  • Version ID: When we add an object to the S3 then Version ID is a string generated by S3 that uniquely identifies the object.
  • Metadata: It is the data about data that is getting stored by the user in S3. Metadata can assign to the objects which are stored in Amazon S3.
  • Subresources: The subresource mechanism uses to store information related to an object.
