Amazon S3 Storage Lens introduces Storage Lens groups, a new way to aggregate metrics using custom filters based on object metadata. Storage Lens groups help you drill-down into characteristics of your data, such as distribution of objects by age, your most common file types, and more. This information helps you better understand and optimize your S3 storage.

Amazon S3 Storage Lens is a cloud storage analytics feature that delivers organization-wise visibility into object storage usage and activity. Now with Storage Lens groups, you can view metrics filtered by object tag, prefix, suffix, age, or size. For example, you can filter metrics by object tag to identify your fastest-growing datasets, or visualize your storage based on object size and age to inform your storage archive strategy. To get started, you can create Storage Lens groups through the Amazon S3 Console, Amazon CLI, or Amazon SDK, and attach them to your Storage Lens dashboards.

Amazon S3 Storage Lens is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more about Storage Lens refer to the documentation. For S3 Storage Lens advanced metrics pricing details, visit the Amazon S3 pricing page.
