Hi guys, i intend to sign up for the simple storage service provided by AWS for parts of my backup. Firstly, can you transfer data via FTP , if not, what methods of transfer are avaliable between your PC and S3, and is it secure enough to hold all my work? Also, am i charged for transfer between my PC and AWS , or is it just public transfer.

If you have any experience with AWS i would very much appreciate ANY advice, and if you have a better alternative, i would also appreciate that :)

yes I use AWS for hosting flash video trailers for my clients sites – you cannot ftp in to the account – I use cyberduck on my Mac (not sure if it’s available on pc) – but if you google for an uploader to S3 there are plenty of freebies.

It’s a little peculiar at first as you have to create these bucket things (they are basically just folders) to store things – but yes it’s ridiculously cheap and I chunk out a large amount of bandwidth for movie trailers across many sites.

Great service and very secure.

In fact Envato use them for images on market places.
