Difference between AWS S3 and Amazon Storage Gateway

0 votes

 AWS S3 and AWS storage gateway both do the same task of storing data. I am confused as to what is difference between these two. Can anyone explain me what is the exact difference between two services offered by Amazon with help of an example?

Basically AWS S3 is a file system. It acts as network disk. If you have no prior knowledge of cloud, you can treat it as dropbox.  AWS Storage Gateway is an virtual interface which enables you to read/write data from/to aws S3 or other aws storage services.

You can relate S3 as dropbox itself, that you can access through web or api, and AWS Storage Gateway as the dropbox client on your pc, which simulate the dropbox as your local drive .
