Amazon S3 Life Cycle Management in AWS (Amazon Web Services)
In this article,we will see
- Create S3 bucket by making it public.
- Enable Versioning.
- Configure Life Cycle Management(Add Life Cycle Rule).
- Upload objects in the S3 bucket.
Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) provides the lifecycle storage management system to reduce the operating cost by moving the data in to different storage classes.
The life cycle management purely depends on Storage Classes/Tiers.
S3 Standard – Frequently Accessed Data.
S3 Intelligent Tiering – Long- lived data with changing or unknown access patterns.
S3 Standard IA – Long- lived , Infrequently accessed data.
S3 One Zone IA – Long- lived , Infrequently accessed Non-critical data.
Infrequently Access the data
S3 Glacier – Archive data with retrieval times ranging from minutes to hours.
To get the data , need to wait for 2-5 hours.
S3 Glacier Deep Archive – Archive data that rarely, if even needs to be accessed with retrieval times in hours.
To get the data , need to wait for 12 hours.
There are two important actions performed by lifecycle management system.
Moving the objects from one storage to another storage based on the rules which you have created. For an example, if you would like to move the files which 30 days older from s3 standard to S3 – IA storage , you could define in rules. Rest of the things will be taken care by AWS.
You could set the expiry date for the objects which are no longer required after certain period. Amazon S3 deletes the expired objects on your behalf.
