Companies use Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for its flexibility, durability, scalability, and ability to perform many things besides storing data. This has led to an exponential rise in the usage of S3 buckets across numerous AWS Regions, across tens or even hundreds of AWS accounts. To optimize costs and analyze security posture, Amazon S3 Storage Lens provides a single view of object storage usage and activity across your entire Amazon S3 storage. S3 Storage Lens includes an embedded dashboard to understand, analyze, and optimize storage with over 29 usage and activity metrics, aggregated for your entire organization, with drill-downs for specific accounts, Regions, buckets, or prefixes. In addition to being accessible in a dashboard on the Amazon S3 console, the raw data can also be scheduled for export to an S3 bucket.
