Nov. 17, 2009 - PRLog -- Beacon Hill, Inc. a New York software consultancy released today its S3cp tool as Open Source.

S3cp is a command line copy tool for copying files into and out of Amazon S3 Storage accounts. S3cp was designed to work as simply as the Unix cp command.

"We've been doing more work with Amazon's Web Services for our clients and finding that S3 is especially popular. There are a number of tools to manage S3 accounts that are quite nice but we found that many times we just wanted a simple command line tool to interact with a S3 account. This desire was what prompted us to build s3cp. Now, we find that we are using s3cp all the time. Also, it is being used in a number of scripts to copy backups to S3 nightly.", said Brad Lucas, President of Beacon Hill, Inc.

The application is downloadable and includes the full source code for inspection and customization. A pre-built runnable application is included in the download so the application can be tried without having to rebuild.

Those users interested in building S3cp should be familiar with Ant and Java.

To obtain s3cp visit and select one of the download links.
