About Product

Amazon S3 or Amazon Simple Storage Service is a service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that provides object storage through a web service interface. Amazon S3 uses the same scalable storage infrastructure that uses to run its global e-commerce network. Amazon S3 can be employed to store any type of object, which allows for uses like storage for Internet applications, backup and recovery, disaster recovery, data archives, data lakes for analytics, and hybrid cloud storage.

Google Cloud Storage is a RESTful online file storage web service for storing and accessing data on Google Cloud Platform infrastructure. The service combines the performance and scalability of Google's cloud with advanced security and sharing capabilities. It is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), comparable to Amazon S3 online storage service. Google Cloud Storage offers four storage classes, identical in throughput, latency and durability.

Google Cloud offers two primary backup options:

NearLine Storage
This option is intended for data that users need to access no more than once per month, for example backups and multimedia content only occasionally accessed by users.

ColdLine Storage
This option is for data that can be accessed no more than once per year (for example, disaster recovery backups of key systems), or possibly not at all (for example data held for compliance reasons).

All Cloud Storage data are automatically stored in an encrypted state, but you can also provide your own encryption keys. For more information, see Cloud Storage Encryption. Gsutil performs all operations using transport-layer encryption (HTTPS), to protect against data leakage over shared network links.

Technical Details

Amazon S3 has various features you can use to organize and manage your data in ways that support specific use cases, enable cost efficiencies, enforce security, and meet compliance requirements.

  • Storage analytics and insights
  • Access management and security
  • Access management and security
  • S3 Object Lambda
  • Query in place

Google Cloud Storage offers four storage classes, identical in throughput, latency and durability. The four classes, Multi-Regional Storage, Regional Storage, Nearline Storage, and Coldline Storage, differ in their pricing, minimum storage durations, and availability.

  • ​Interoperability - Google Cloud Storage is interoperable with other cloud storage tools and libraries that work with services such as Amazon S3 and Eucalyptus Systems.
  • Consistency - Upload operations to Google Cloud Storage are atomic, providing strong read-after-write consistency for all upload operations.
  • Access Control - Google Cloud Storage uses access control lists (ACLs) to manage object and bucket access. An ACL consists of one or more entries, each granting a specific permission to a scope. Permissions define what someone can do with an object or bucket (for example, READ or WRITE). Scopes define who the permission applies to. For example, a specific user or a group of users (such as Google account email addresses, Google Apps domain, public access, etc.)
  • Resumable Uploads - Google Cloud Storage provides a resumable data transfer feature that allows users to resume upload operations after a communication failure has interrupted the flow of data.
