If you’re using Amazon Web Services, then there is a higher possibility that you’re familiar with Amazon S3. Amazon S3 ( Simple Storage Service ) is a widely used service where we can store (theoretically unlimited amount of) our data with a high availability (99.99%). That’s why we, the Visual Content team at trivago, use Amazon S3 to store the images which you see on our website and many other tools.
