About Amazon S3

Amazon S3 object storage is one of the most commonly used solutions to store large amounts of data. AWS S3 buckets provide a scalable and secure option to store the data created through your Astro pipeline, no matter the format.

Use Case

Storing large amounts of data objects, such as raw files ingested from various sources or logs, is one of the most common reasons to combine Astro with Amazon S3. With Astro, you can easily orchestrate pipelines to start once a file lands in S3 in an asynchronous resource-friendly way by using specialized deferrable operators to watch for changes. Thanks to Astro's support of Airflow 2.4 it’s possible to use dataset-driven scheduling with S3 objects to further optimize your data pipeline.
