Amazon S3

Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a web service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).1

Amazon S3 provides cloud storage through web services interfaces (REST, SOAP, and BitTorrent). WinSCP uses the REST interface to interact with S3.

See a guide to Connecting to Amazon S3 service.


There are also other storage services that support S3 API, like Backblaze B2, Dell ECS, DigitalOcean Spaces, MinIO, Wasabi, etc. You can use WinSCP with these services as well.
