High Availability, with High Performance, IAM access control, and server-side encryption at a low cost

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for the storage of large amounts of data. It's a public cloud deployment model that anyone can deploy. There is no need to upgrade as they don't have versions, it's a managed service, it's hybrid. There are changes that we make internally. It's Amazon S3.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's good for starting up because you only pay for what you use."
  • "A feature that should be included is to find and provide a HIPPA compliant solution for the Presigned URL."

What other advice do I have?

It's difficult to offer advice as it depends on the use case and what this solution is intended for. This solution is managed fully, and there is no need for upgrades or anything. It's cloud-based. If you just Gmail, you don't upgrade Gmail. I would recommend this solution for companies of any size. It's good for starting up because you only pay for what you use. It's internet-capable, making it good for any company. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
