With Cloud Storage gaining popularity over the past few years, more and more website applications are integrating with services like Amazon’s low-cost S3 “Simple Storage Service”.
In the WordPress community many eCommerce, Backup, Contact, Membership, Media, and a wide range of other plugin types integrate seamlessly with Amazon S3 using API keys. These integrations make it easy for your website to seamlessly send or receive files without impacting the performance of your website.
As with any storage device, it can become difficult to manage your files on Amazon S3 as they accumulate over time. The Amazon S3 webpage can be a bit tedious and time-consuming when trying to manage your content.
There is an easier way to manage S3
Fortunately, some innovative companies have developed applications for the PC and Mac that make using Amazon S3 nearly as easy as using your computers file explorer.
