Accepted Answer

No you do not need an AWS account to use Spaces. The reason you might have seen references to S3 is that the Spaces API was designed to be interoperable with Amazon’s AWS S3 API. That way you can use Spaces with the tooling you already know. In most cases, the only difference will be setting the “endpoint” or “base” URL to ${REGION}.digitaloceanspaces.com.
