About the Whitepaper
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a highly scalable platform that includes more than one hundred
different services. Amazon S3 is one of AWS’s main storage services and offers virtually infinite
storage capacity. S3 is safe, secure, reliable and well-priced; making it ideal for use as backup
Abstract - Storage Classes Overview
Amazon S3 offers different storage classes which can be easily used with CloudBerry Managed Backup. Each class addresses a slightly different use case and comes with its own price point. Understanding which storage class is best for your backup data is integral when looking to save on cloud storage costs. Storage classes can be targeted directly for backup or you can design storage lifecycle policies that automatically move data between classes. All storage classes include high levels of availability (uptime) and durability (reliability) and support SSL encryption for security during data transmission.

When you create an AWS account, you have two major security pain-points:
- Securing the AWS account
- Securing the data in Amazon S3
AWS provides you with several features that cover both of these security concerns. To secure your S3 storage buckets and perform audits you can enable server-side encryption and S3 bucket logging, respectively. To secure your AWS account, you should configure AWS Access and Identity Management (IAM).
