00:00 - What is S3 Storage Lens
How S3 Storage Lens works. It’s a storage lens that provides you a single view of usage and activity across your S3 storage. Let’s say if you are having 50 buckets in one account and 50 buckets in another account, and every account is a part of AWS organization. It will help you to get all the metrics out of your organization’s account or a specific account. You will see a single view where you can realize how much GB is present for that particular bucket. Whether you can optimize it or you can delete it or not depends upon the requirement you have. You can also use S3 Storage Lens to get summary insights, such as finding out how much storage you have across your entire organization, or which are fastest growing buckets. Identify the outliers in your storage metrics and drill down further to investigate the source of the spike in the usage or activity. It uses the best practices, you can also assess the best practices out of the storage lens such as analyzing the percentage of the bucket usage. If you have encryptions or if the object in the bucket is locked or not. All those best practices come into the picture. That’s where the storage lens will help you out.

In overview we have all that data, which previously I had mentioned. We have a total storage of 273 KB, five objects, we have active buckets, we have active account one. So here, we can check the summary, the cost efficiency of our buckets in the Data Protection. You can drill it with day by day, week by week, month by month.
Next, here are the trends and distribution. From here, we select the metrics. We have different metrics – schemetry metrics, primary metrics. Obviously we have no data there. It looks like this. Here we have storage class distribution. Region distribution, we use almost a standard class. Here are the graphs. Here are the top overview. In there we have selected with the last three top most three buckets here, you can change these with two with one. I’m going with three. Here we have one account and we’ve used two regions and also two active buckets. From accounts, we have to monitor these trends, distribution by Accounts mobile analytics from accounts. Here we can check trend of region which we have only two regions. We need to buy storage classes and here we can montior by buckets.
