In this post, we’ll be talking about:
Amazon Web Services (Amazon Simple Storage Service - Amazon S3)
Amazon Web Services (Amazon Simple Storage Service - Amazon S3)
Amazon Web Services is a computing service provided by Amazon. Services like web hosting, video hosting, data storage and many more.
Amazon Web Services provides many services and the one we are interested in is Amazon S3 aka Amazon Simple Storage Service.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), provides individuals with secure, durable, highly-scalable cloud storage. Amazon S3 is easy to use for storage, with a simple web service interface to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the web.
With Amazon S3, you pay only for the storage you actually use. There is no minimum fee and no setup cost.
Benefits of Amazon S3
- Low Cost
- High Performance
- and Easy to use
- No ads at the beginning/end of a video
AWS Free Tier Account
The AWS Free Tier includes services with a free tier available for 12 months following your AWS sign-up date.
AWS Free Tier provides 5GB storage, 20,000 view/download Requests, and 2,000 upload Requests and 15GB of data transfer out each month for one year.
Creating an AWS Free Tier Account
Visit the AWS Free Tier website and click on Create a Free account and fill in the account details.
But there’s a caveat. Amazon will ask you to enter your Debit/Credit cards at the time of registering. Trust us no need to worry because Amazon will only bill your credit or debit card for usage that is not covered by the Free Usage Tier i.e. if you go beyond 5GB of storage and more than 2,000 upload requests per month. 5GB of storage and 2,000 upload is quite enough to get started that too for FREE.
Next verify and login to your AWS account and navigate to the Amazon S3 Serivces page.
Creating a Bucket for storing video files on Amazon S3
A bucket is a container for storing data in Amazon S3. When creating a bucket, you can choose a Region to optimize for latency, minimize costs.
Next click on your bucket name.
and then click on Upload to upload a video file.
now before we can access or play the video file we just uploaded we need to make the file public to the internet. Right click on the video file and click
To access the video URL right click on the video file and click properties and then grab your video URL.
The video URL will be like this : https://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/thevideotrainertest/Downloading+And+Installing+Modules+In+Orchard.mp4
Amazon S3 Pricing after Free Tier
Amazon S3 is pretty cheap and very affordable way to host data files.
Cost For 20GB Storage, 50,000 view/download requests, 3000 Upload requests and 20GB Data-in and Data-out will be just $3 per month. That’s affordable. Isn’t it?
