S3 Browser (Legacy)

Table of Contents


As a rough analogy, you can think of S3 as one large hard drive that everyone shares. Within S3, a 'bucket' is essentially a folder where you can store files. The S3 Browser lists all S3 buckets that are associated with this account. Select a bucket to view its contents.

Note: Although S3 buckets are very easy to set up and use, Amazon's Elastic Block Store (EBS), which provides persistent data storage on EC2, offers several tangible advantages. Not the least of which is performance gains.

Note: There is a new UI implementation of this feature. This older version will still be supported until it is replaced by the new S3 Browser. For more information, see S3 Browser (beta).
