Minimum Object Size for Lifecycle Policy
One drawback mentioned is the minimum size requirement for object storage when implementing a lifecycle policy on the S3 bucket. Objects smaller than 108 KB are not applicable for lifecycle policy management, which can be limiting.
Size Limitation for SNS Messages
AWS SNS SMS has a limitation of 256 KB for message size. Some architectural designs may require notifying end users or pushing large bundles of data to different AWS services, which can be challenging with this size restriction.
AWS Cloud Storage, including SNS SMS, can be complex for users who are new to cloud computing or AWS services. Setting up and customizing storage options may require a learning curve.
Some users find it challenging to predict storage costs accurately with AWS Cloud Storage, especially if they exceed their storage limits, leading to unexpected additional charges.
Users mentioned a potential concern about vendor lock-in when using AWS Cloud Storage, as migrating data and applications from AWS to another provider or on-premises infrastructure can be challenging due to proprietary services and architecture.
