Amazon Simple Storage Service is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

Amazon S3 has a simple web services interface that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites.

Create Bucket on Amazon S3

Step 1

The first step is to log in to Amazon S3 console page and navigate to spaces and click on Create bucket as shown in the screenshot.

Step 2

Next chose a name and region for your bucket

Step 3

Step 5

From the Services tab, go to IAM (Identity and Access Management) page

Step 6

Click Policies under Access Management and Create policy

Step 7

Choose the JSON tab and paste the following policy ( make sure to replace BUCKET_NAME with the name of the bucket created previously

"Sid": "VisualEditor0",

"Effect": "Allow",

"Action": [











"Resource": "*"

This policy will allow the user to write and read in our bucket only.
