This lab environment has been provided so that you can practice using AWS Simple Storage Service (S3), including:

  • How to create a bucket
  • How to upload an object
  • How to set and change Storage Classes
  • How to set proper permission and share an object publicly

This lab environment has been setup as more of a "sandbox" for you to use and explore S3 - rather than having a specific task to complete.

NOTE: The S3 console has changed regarding how to set buckets and files public. For details, see:
