Managing Data in S3 with Versioning and Lifecycle Rules

Hands-On Lab

In this hands-on lab, we'll configure 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 include recovery from accidental deletions, and lifecycle policies allow for automated migration to lower cost storage classes when appropriate.

Good luck, and enjoy the lab!

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
