More Detail

Amazon Web Services’ Amazon S3 leads the market regarding revenue and the amount of data under management. This dominance gives AWS control over both the ecosystem of developers who use the S3 API and the storage vendors that implement the S3 API in their storage platforms delivered on-prem. Though AWS has been hesitant to emulate some of its competitors by natively offering products from other vendors such as Dell EMC and NetApp, the provider can deliver end-to-end solutions from edge and on-prem enterprise data centers to public cloud storage services without sacrificing security.
