Welcome to this hands-on AWS Learning Activity for configuring S3 Versioning and Lifecycle Rules.

This activity provides you with the opportunity to get hands-on experience configuring the following in S3:

1) Enable Versioning on an S3 Bucket
2) Configure lifecycle rules to automatically transition objects to lower-cost storage classes
3) Change image files to reduced redundancy storage as the organization has means to recreate them if they are lost.

Understanding and utilizing these two S3 features are at the core of S3 data management. Common use cases for the features include the fact that versioning helps to prevent accidental deletions, and lifecycle policies allow for automated migration to lower cost storage classes when appropriate.

Good luck and enjoy the Learning Activity!
