AWS advances cloud storage with Intelligent Tiering, new data management tools

November 26, 2018 / MARIA DEUTSCHER

Amazon Web Services Inc. opened its re:Invent 2018 conference today with the introduction of new products and features intended to give enterprises more incentive to move their data to its cloud platform.Many of the additions center on the provider’s S3 object storage service. S3 is one of the original products that AWS had on offer when it launched 12 years ago and continues to be a linchpin of the platform. The provider claims that S3 stores trillions of data objects for customers while handling millions of requests per second.Intelligent Tiering, the first new offering, incorporates insights that AWS gained from analyzing how companies use their data objects, Chief Evangelist Jeff Barr wrote in a blog post. It lets companies reduce S3 expenses by moving records to slower, less expensive storage hardware if they’re not used for a certain period of time.
