Hi, I'm new to Amazon Web Services and trying to understand its services on cloud than with our local data centres. I have a small query about AWS S3 storage services. Can we say that AWS S3 storage is like any content management server like Documentum or EDMI or Sharepoint server that we use in our web application to store files? AWS S3 is something like storing files (objects) on server(in directory structure)  and saving its path (object URL) in AWS databases like DynomoDB or RDS that we used to do in non-cloud, regular web application development practice?

Yes. It stores the file on cloud. We can then access them and operate them using Amazon S3 provided APIs and REST  web services
