The Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3. is a web-based storage service provided by Amazon.com. The service offers developers and IT administrators an inexpensive way to store and retrieve data that can be accessed from anywhere on the web. Amazon S3 has become one of the most popular cloud services since its debut in 2006.Amazon Web Services (AWS. has been growing at a fast pace and is currently the largest cloud provider, with the market share of over 34% in 20141.
Amazon CloudWatch is a web service that provides monitoring for AWS cloud resources and applications. It is designed to give users statistics about their infrastructure, application, and performance metrics. This includes things like CPU load, disk read/write speeds, network traffic levels, etc. CloudWatch can also send notifications through email, SMS, or Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS. topic when thresholds are reached or breached. It also supports integration with other AWS services, such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), and Auto Scaling. CloudWatch stores metrics for up to 15 months, with a minimum storage of 6 hours.
Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3. are two cloud services offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS. They have worked together since the very beginning of AWS offering services in 2006. These two services complement each other very well. Amazon S3 provides highly scalable object storage, while Amazon CloudWatch offers monitoring and metrics to track the health and usage of your AWS account.
Amazon S3 files can include any type of data (text, video, images. that is accessible via HTTP or HTTPS protocols. You can use S3 as just another folder on your file system. For example, you can add files from Windows Explorer using the URL specified in the bucket properties. Using buckets is convenient because they provide a unified access point for all objects stored in them.
In addition to providing simple file storage, Amazon S3 provides access to your objects using a REST API, which simplifies interacting with your S3 objects from your custom applications or scripts.
Amazon CloudWatch collects metrics from AWS resources and helps evaluate them by providing standard alarms that notify you if a metric passes a certain threshold. You can use these metrics to understand how much billing you will incur each month and predict the amount of computational resources required by a planned application deployment. If you are using AWS instances to run your applications, you can set alarms to notify you when an instance is not performing as expected. For example, you can create an alarm that sends an email when CPU utilization on an instance reaches 80%.
Using Amazon S3 and CloudWatch integration you can gain additional benefits such as:
Use Amazon S3 event notifications to trigger actions based on changes to data in your S3 buckets; for example you can create a rule to send an email notification every time a new object is created or updated within a specific bucket.
Access CloudWatch metrics for Amazon S3 buckets using the Amazon S3 console or API calls. For example you can find out how much space a specific bucket utilizes at any given time or how many requests it receives per day.
Customers who want to see the health status of their entire system across multiple AWS services can use both CloudWatch and S3 together to get comprehensive metrics.
You can also monitor each component individually using CloudWatch metrics for each one of them and then gain more detailed information about overall performance using S3 metrics. For example you can check your EC2 instances performance using instance level metrics from CloudWatch and then analyze overall system performance using average values across multiple instances from S3 console or API.
