Pros: The price and reliability are my favorites. Other than internet-wide issues (and once just @ Amazon), it's been perfect.

Cons: The UI isn't great, but the dev tools are solid. Permissions are a pain in the you-know-what to learn for the first time, and even then they're complex.

Pros: Amazon web Services, is eating the world with its services in the cloud, and in particular the S3 service that allows you to store data on your servers, it is like a kind of databases on the servers of Amazon, where you have access to from any part of the world

Cons: the only bad thing that I find AWS S3, is that if you have internet, you have nothing, although it tends to be a bit complicated the configuration of their servers for basic users.

Overall: keep my data in the cloud, is a flexibility that we are looking for today

Pros: I store my phone call data on Amazon S3, my phone system automatically uploads the calls to S3 and stores them for 6 months without me having to go in and clean up,

Cons: cost to download the calls out, I'm paying for the storage, I thought it would be free to get access to them when i needed them.

Overall: able to store a large amount of data easily.

Pros: I love that there is significant storage in their free tier which would make me consider it for bigger paid products down the road

Cons: There are some technical things that I did not understand at first, but online tutorials and their own support got me where I needed

Pros: S3 is really "Simple Storage Service" in it's literal sense as it's really easy to work with buckets to store files.I really find the website hosting service one of the best features on S3.

Cons: Upload times for files can get very agitating even if the files are compressed.If this is fixed, it would greatly enhance the user experience.

Overall: When developing Alexa Skills, S3 serves as a good place to store my source code when the files get too large.

S3, like all of AWS, is a big sprawling powerful product

Pros: S3 is absolutely an expert tool, and as such is incredibly powerful. We use S3 throughout our workflow in a bunch of different places, and it solves a number of problems for us wherever we need to put files online (whether temporarily or permanently). For certain types of hosting and usage, the pricing is so low you can essentially forget that it costs anything and throw whatever you want at it.

Cons: The level of complexity in S3 is quite high, so even a process like setting permissions on a bucket feels like passing through some sort of inscrutable bureaucracy to some degree. While many AWS users are likely domain experts, for the rest of us who lack the time (or inclination) to dedicate as much time to learning the system, S3 can have an extremely steep learning curve and some byzantine ways of doing things.

Pros: A cost effective way to host larger media (in my case, mostly our internal testing automation engine) without having to upgrade my server hosting capacity. Although you have to pay for it but the premium support is one of the best in the industry, no technical capability is required as they help with setup and administration.

Cons: The service is more on the expensive side in comparison to its peers. If AWS could lower the price of the service that would be great, but we can't really expect such a service to be completely free.

Pros: Unlimited Storage capacity and highly scalable pay as you go usage, works like a charm with CDN cloudfront and all my static website contents are stored in S3

Cons: Its file explorer stinks and cannot even download all the bucket files are backup them in one click or even clone buckets to another bucket

Overall: I use it with all my static websites and storage needs of backend API, It scales storage capacity is unbelievable and worth the money

Pros: A cost-effective way to host larger media. Once set up, the interface is easy to navigate and reliable. The uploading interface and feedback are outstanding and the best I have ever experienced. Their rates are extremely competitive.

Cons: There is a learning curve when you are getting it set up and you have to be willing to pay if you need even the most basic support from a human. Considering what they charge, this is reasonable.

Pros: Amazon S3 offers all the functions necessary to manage projects at the server level. I wanted to do a review before this software, since I used it a lot at the commercial level and we did not have any type of failure or stopped supporting our requirements.
I appreciate your quick way to link projects, all files and sources are stored without problems in Amazon S3.

Cons: The validation process is slow, Amazon S3 invests a lot of time in certifying that we are dependent customers of its software. The price is high, like some other Amazon products, but it is still excellent.

Pros: I really like S3. It is an easy way to store any data I want in a figurative bucket online. It truly has revolutionized my workflow.

Cons: I wish that S3 had better filtering of what was coming into the bucket. You could upload malicious code to your bucket and there are no filters against that in the upload process.

Overall: I can store literally anything I want digitally in an S3 bucket. This has completely changed how I deal with customer data, and is a lifesaver!

Pros: Easy to use APIs and great scalability make Amazon S3 a great choice for cloud storage. It is also widely used around the world, and this will allow you to easily find help whenever you need.

Cons: I don't really feel I would need more from a cloud storage, and everything it does, is done greatly! I would only reduce the price for transfers between archives.

Pros: Everything about this is amazing, load times are quick, organising databases are simple and easy to use

Cons: The Gui isn't the best at giving you access. I find my self going back to the CLI for a lot of really simple tasks.

Overall: Solid AWS Product.
