Amazon S3 – Simple Storage Solution
Robert Nyman talks about Amazon’s S3 service, which provides pretty much anyone with a great online storage system and talks about their upcoming pricing changes, which will make it even more affordable for some people.
Basically, what this means is that I pay about 20 – 24$ a year for a safe and reliable backup of about 10 GB of data. Not too shabby, eh? If youâ€™re looking for safe and very cheap backup, I would really recommend Amazon S3. No need to worry about malfunctioning external disk drives, burning backup CDs/DVDs all the time or other issues. Transfer the files to Amazon and youâ€™re safe!
There are also recommendations for various tools you can use to access the S3 service. I, for one, am excited to give the service a try to back up all my personal photos, coding projects and design work. Check out Ryan’s post for more details.
