Eighteen years ago today, Amazon completely changed how developers work with data storage by giving us Simple Storage Service (S3).

S3 rewrote the rules of storage and propelled us into a new era of cloud computing. Traditional storage solutions were cumbersome and costly, and they shackled developers to the limitations of the hardware. With S3, Amazon introduced a shift towards Storage as a Service, liberating developers from the burdensome tasks of purchasing, provisioning, and managing physical storage. No longer were they bound by the precarious dance of capacity planning, where overestimating meant wasted resources and underestimating spelled disaster for uptime.
