Amazon S3 is one of the most popular cloud storage solutions on the Web. It allows customers to store their data in one of the Amazon's data centers, and then access it through a simple web services interface. Twilio is a platform for communication that provides a programmable phone system as a service.
To integrate Amazon S3 and Twilio, you can create an application that allows the user to upload files to S3 and then make them available for download via Twilio. The user in such case becomes a client of the server, which has two roles. 1. to upload the file to S3 and 2. to make it accessible via Twilio. While uploading a file to S3, you need to create a bucket and attach its ACL (Access Control List. to the newly created bucket (Figure 1.
Figure 1. Access Control List block in Amazon Web Services
The ACL determines who can access the bucket, what actions are allowed, and the conditions under which these actions can occur. In this example, we only allow authorized users to perform GET requests on the bucket. After that, we should configure our server to receive the request from Twilio via HTTP POST method, as well as download the file from S3 and save it on disk (Figure 2.

A user will have to open up a phone number configured with Twilio and type into it a unique code that will be generated by your server. After that, the server will take an audio file uploaded by the user and send it as a voice message over Twilio. The user will be notified about receiving the message and will be able to start downloading a file from S3.
You can use this solution as a backend for your voice response application or only as an interesting example of how you can integrate S3 with other web services like Twilio. This article showed how useful public cloud services from Amazon Web Services can be in providing some basic functionality for your applications and how easy it is to deploy them.
