Application Programming Interface (API)

An API, or Application Programming Interface, serves as a bridge that enables different software systems to communicate and interact with each other. Let's consider this in the context of cloud storage, specifically Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), which is a widely used cloud storage service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

In the realm of cloud storage, the S3 API defines a standardized set of rules and protocols that developers can use to interact with the S3 service programmatically. This API allows developers to perform various operations, such as uploading and downloading files, managing buckets (containers for storing objects), setting access permissions, and retrieving metadata about stored objects.
