S3 is a highly scalable and fast Internet data-storage system that makes it simple to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere in the world. One pays for the storage and bandwidth based on the actual usage of the service. There is no setup cost, minimum cost, or recurring overhead cost. Amazon provides the administration and maintenance of the storage infrastructure, leaving one free to focus on the core functions of one's systems and applications.
