S4 - Super Simple Storage Service
The Super Simple Storage Service (S4) is a new innovation in cloud storage. Our advanced write-only storage provides the highest security, lowest cost, and simplest management available.

Another cloud storage solution? Hardly.

While storage in the cloud becomes increasingly commonplace, the market need for a new paradigm, with additional speed, security, and reliability is paramount.

Many of our competitors employ an old fashioned read/write interface.

Our competitors:

S4's state-of-the-art write-only interface removes the headaches commonly associated with reading data.

S4:

More Secure:
Because of our strict write-only design, S4 is the only service that has provable data-at-rest security. In fact, we leverage our own high-security system to illustrate this proof, available here.

More Horsepower:
Our market research indicates the average customer reads data FOUR TIMES more often than writing. By not only reducing but eliminating entirely these spurious operations we can provide blazingly fast writes with a near 100% success rate.

More Integrated:
Consuming S4 is a snap with advanced integration options. Upload directly from our website, send an email, tweet your content, or simply yell in an empty room. Engineers can easily interact with our API via SOAP, REST, and YouTube comment - where they're guaranteed never to be read.
Imagine the convenience of enabling your customers to open help tickets, provide feedback, add feature requests directly to your shared, read-proof store.
