Storage class
  • Default - uses the default storage class configured in your Amazon S3 account
  • Standard - this option offers high durability, availability, and performance object storage for frequently accessed data.
  • Standard - Infrequent Access Storage - is an Amazon S3 storage class for data that is accessed less frequently, but requires rapid access when needed.
  • One Zone - Infrequent Access Storage - designed for customers who want a lower-cost option for infrequently accessed data
  • Reduced redundancy (not recommended) - enables customers to store noncritical, reproducible data at lower levels of redundancy than Amazon S3’s standard storage. It provides a highly available solution for distributing or sharing content that is durably stored elsewhere, or for storing thumbnails, transcoded media, or other processed data that can be easily reproduced.
