Will list down imporant notes on S3 APIs here.
“dual-stack” endpoint and IPv6
The “dual-stack” endpoint supports access over both IPv4 and IPv6. In most cases, no further configuration is required for access over IPv6, because most network clients prefer IPv6 addresses by default.

S3 Lifecycle management provides the ability to define the lifecycle of your object, mainly to reduce your cost of storage. For example, you can set infrequently accessed objects to move into lower cost storage tier (like S3-IA) after a period of time. After another period, it can be moved into Amazon Glacier for archive and compliance, and eventually deleted.
You can set lifecycle transition policy to:

A signed URL includes additional information such as an expiration date and time that gives you more control over access to your content. This additional information appears in a policy statement, which is based on either a canned policy or a custom policy.
Custom policy provides more flexibility over canned as it allows reuse the policy, and to specify date and time that users can begin to access and IP address or range of IP addresses of the users who can access, and includes a base64-encoded version of the policy.

Glacier is a secure, durable, and extremely low-cost cloud storage service for data archiving and long-term backup. Customers can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.004 per gigabyte per month.
Glacier Retrieval Process
To retrieve Amazon S3 data stored in Amazon Glacier, initiate a retrieval request using the Amazon S3 APIs or the Amazon S3 Management Console.

Once you enable Versioning for a bucket, Amazon S3 preserves existing objects anytime you perform a PUT, POST, COPY, or DELETE operation on them. You can enable versioning while creating an object or from Properties tab of the bucket.
Important notes on versioning:
The bucket owner, the AWS account that created the bucket (root account), and all authorized IAM users can enable versioning.

S3 Analytics, S3 Inventory, and S3 CloudWatch metrics can be found under “Management” tab in the S3 Console. Tags and Cross Region Replication (CRR) can be found under advanced settings under Properties tab. As CRR is a very common use case, we will also have a lab for it. Lifecycle rules are discussed in detail here.

Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) is a simple, scalable file storage for use with Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud. With Amazon EFS, storage capacity is elastic, growing and shrinking automatically as you add and remove files.
