What is AWS S3 Intelligent-Tiering

S3 Intelligent-Tiering is an Amazon S3 storage class that analyzes an AWS user's stored data and automatically moves it between storage tiers based on usage frequency. It is designed to optimize storage costs for data with irregular or unknown access patterns.

S3 Intelligent-Tiering features

A user can access S3 Intelligent-Tiering through the AWS Management Console, command-line interface, or S3 API. He or she can select this storage class when data is uploaded to S3, or move existing data into this class from another class. Lifecycle rules can also be established to transition data to another storage class, such as Amazon S3 Glacier, after a designated period.
The service monitors and predicts user behavior to determine the tier in which it will store data. Those predictions are the output of machine learning algorithms AWS built to analyze data traffic patterns across the trillions of objects stored in S3.
S3 Intelligent-Tiering is one of several S3 storage options designed around accessibility demands. S3 Intelligent-Tiering is not recommended for a user who knows data access patterns well.
