Amazon Web Services hosts more than 762 billion objects in S3


Amazon Web Services looks like it could be bursting at the seams based on some new figures. The cloud space has grew to hold approximately 762 billion objects in Amazon S3.

For reference, Amazon S3 is a “simple storage service,” a scalable cloud computing platform for developers for dealing with objects measuring between 1 byte to 5 terabytes in size.

By comparison, AWS hosted 262 billion objects by the end of 2010. Thus, AWS saw a surge of volume by 192 percent year-over-year, and S3 grew faster in 2011 than it did in any year since AWS launched in 2006.
