Amazon Web Services PHP Blog:
Syncing Data with Amazon S3
June 28, 2013 @ 11:57:59

On the Amazon AWS blog there's a recent post showing you how to sync data with S3 and handle multiple files quickly and easily.

Have you ever needed to upload an entire directory of files to Amazon S3 or download an Amazon S3 bucket to a local directory? With a recent release of the AWS SDK for PHP, this is now not only possible, but really simple.

He includes example code for doing it both ways - upload and download syncing - as well as some options you can use to customize the connection. You can define things like ACL settings, the number of concurrent connections and if you want the debug options turned off or on.

PHPMaster.com:
Integrating Amazon S3 using PEAR
October 17, 2011 @ 08:34:01

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new tutorial showing you how to integrate Amazon's S3 service with your application via the Services_Amazon_S3 PEAR package.

In the process of reviewing documentation for Orchestra.io, I found that it doesn't allow file uploads. Instead, it's recommended that Amazon S3 be used for file hosting. If you aren't familiar with it, S3 is an online storage web service that is part of Amazon Web Services (AWS). It provides access to fairly cheap storage through a variety of web service interfaces. This article will demonstrate how to sign up for an Amazon S3 account and use PEAR's Services_Amazon_S3 package to interact with S3 in your own application.

They walk you through the whole process - getting signed up at the AWS site, creating credentials, installing the Services_Amazon_S3 package (via the PEAR installer) and using it in some sample scripts.

IBM developerWorks:
Cloud computing with PHP, Part 1 Using Amazon S3 with the Zend Framework
September 24, 2009 @ 11:43:22

Doug Tidwell has posted the first part of a series of tutorials looking at connecting your Zend Framework applications with "the cloud" to the IBM developerWorks site. This initial article focuses on integrating an application with the Amazon S3 technology.

Cloud computing promises unlimited disk space for users and applications. In an ideal world, accessing that storage would be as easy as accessing a local hard drive. Unfortunately, the basic APIs of most cloud storage services force programmers to think about protocols and configuration details instead of simply working with their data. This article looks at classes in the Zend Framework that make it easy to use Amazon's S3 cloud storage service as a boundless hard drive.

Their sample application will show you how to grab the list of your buckets and objects as well as work with current items and create new ones. The interface is made much simpler by the Zend_Service_Amazon_S3 component.

Zend Developer Zone:
Zend Framework 1.8.0 Released
May 01, 2009 @ 08:43:54

The latest version of the Zend Framework has officially been released - version 1.8, the first in the 1.8.x series with lots of new features including components encouraging the rapid application development functionality the framework already has and additional features to make it easier to use ZF in "the cloud".

I'm pleased to announce the Zend Framework 1.8.0 release, the first in our 1.8 series of releases. This release marks the culmination of several long-standing projects, as well as a formalization of many of our recommended practices.

The new rapid application development features include something that's been a long time coming, Zend_Tool. It gives you a command-line interface to build out ZF project parts and configure/display settings for them. Zend_Application was also released in relation to provide a standardized way for boostraping applications with either default configurations or custom settings.

Since cloud computing use has been on the rise, the ZF development team has added in two new components - interfaces for Amazon's Simple Storage Service and the Elastic Compute Cloud.

You can read more in the official press release from Zend.

techPortal:
PHP and the Cloud
March 31, 2009 @ 14:47:10

On the Ibuildings techPortal today Vito Chin has posted a new article dealing with PHP and "the Cloud" - where the popular web language fits into the move towards cloud computing.

Cloud computing refers to the utilization of shared, elastic resources and processing power accessed via the Internet. In some ways, it hails the reversion to the golden age of time-sharing but with significant improvements to the distribution philosophies underlying the delivery infrastructure. [...] Cloud-based development involves in some sense, the outsourcing, of various parts of the application out of the server and into the cloud.

Included is an illustration of how an application would interact with the cloud and an example of working with the S3 service that Amazon offers. The example mentions both the normal services and something called the "elastic compute cloud" that lets you use remote services to run virtual instances of other operating systems.

Jim Wynia's Blog:
WebDAV, PHP and You
December 14, 2007 @ 11:13:00

Jim Wynia has posted some thoughts about a recent announcement of the development of a WebDAV library for PHP to his blog today:

However, over the past few years, WebDAV has started gaining traction as the underlying protocol for Subversion repositories over the web and in several other places. That makes this story about a new PHP library for working with WebDAV interesting.

He notes that he's moved a lot of his file storage to Amazon's s3 service and having this new PHP library would make it even easier for him to get at his content directly from his applications.

Downloading files from Amazon S3
October 19, 2007 @ 13:07:00

The AnyExample.com website has a new tutorial today showing how to download files from the Amazon S3 service through PHP:

This is an example of non-interactive PHP script which downloads file from Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service). Additional libraries like HMAC-SHA1 are not required.

You'll need at least PHP 4.1.0 or higher to follow along but the entire code block is there and ready for use. It makes the GET request to the bucket for your object with the correct authentication and opens a socket to pull the file down.

Davey Shafik's Blog:
PHP Streams Rock my World!
September 12, 2007 @ 14:14:12

Davey Shafik has gotten more than a little excited by the streams functionality in his latest blog post:

PHP streams are absolutely amazing. As mentioned by Elizabeth Smith (a great read if you don't know how to use streams) PHP streams are super powerful. Streams is something that is (to my knowledge) unique to PHP. The closest thing I've seen to it, is Linux's FUSE "user space" (i.e. not kernel module) file systems.

He shows an example of a stream in action and suggests an interface he'd like to see - an automatic connection to the Amazon S3 storage.
