How does Couchdrop work with Amazon S3


Couchdrop adds SFTP functionality to Amazon S3, allowing you to give users secure SFTP access to specific S3 buckets and directories.

With Couchdrop's granular permission controls, you can easily manage user access to S3 buckets and directories. Couchdrop handles all the underlying integration, security and scalability, making SFTP to S3 simple and reliable.
