Amazon S3 Cloud Storage Service Hits 1 Trillion Files Milestone

Posted on Jun 13 2012 - 6:18am by Editorial Staff

Amazon’s Jeff Barr comes with an interesting number saying that late last week the number of objects stored in Amazon S3 reached one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) milestone, means 142 object for every person on Planet Earth or 3.3 objects for every star in our Galaxy. Even, if you could count one object per second it would take you 31,710 years to count them all.

Sunil Kumar of OpsLine, formerly of Animoto, told us that “We really love the feature for deleting multiple objects, but the icing on the cake was the object expiration feature.  It’s amazing how S3 keeps thinking up and launching features that make our lives even easier.”

Jeff, on behalf of the Amazon S3 team, I’d like to thank you for all of the amazing ways that you’ve found to put S3 to use. We really enjoy hearing and reading about your applications.
