comment When s3cmd checks a bucket with thousands of files to sync it, does this count as one list request or thousands?
github.com/s3tools/s3cmd/issues/476 seems to indicate a request per file is possible. "Yes, for all 'sync' commands, we are retrieving the metadata for each object." "We shouldn't be calling object_info() on all objects during a sync in the 1.5.2 release." seems to indicate it may be less hefty if you're on 1.5.2+, but I'd want to benchmark it to know for sure.

Note: LIST requests are limited to 1,000 objects, so it's going to be at least 100 requests, not one.

comment Is code 444 DDoS-safe?
Read and implement the suggestions on blog.cloudflare.com/ddos-prevention-protecting-the-origin instead of trying to make a hacky way around it.

comment Is code 444 DDoS-safe?
1. I can access an IP with a Host header of my choosing (using cURL, or just modifying my local hosts file) just fine. 2. No, a 444 isn't going to fully protect you against DDoS, as your server's still receiving the traffic and having to send a response. Enough traffic to it will still saturate its networking links.

Does it actually have to be browser-based? Why can't you do it server-side with HTTP requests or something?

comment Is EC2 storage really 3 cents per GB?
"Are there additional costs, what if the data is heavily accessed?" Scroll down to "Request Pricing" and "Data Transfer Pricing". AWS pricing is pretty transparent.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a billing question.

comment How to configure Apache to serve default Index.html file stored on attached AWS EBS volume?
That depends on its current contents. Read it and work it out. This is very basic stuff and you're going to have to understand what it does to run an Apache server.

This is a silly idea. The first false positive would collapse the network.

I recommend checking with your legal department first, as this may be illegal in some countries.

Check your logs. Unless you've got a compelling reason to believe someone'd be DDoSing you, that's probably not it.
