Amazon has released new numbers showing continued growth for its Simple Storage Service, better known as S3, one of the core components of Amazon Web Services for third-party web developers.

Between the fourth quarter of 2011 and the second quarter of 2012, the number of objects stored in S3 rose 19 percent, from 762 billion objects to 905 billion, according to the Amazon chart above.

Jeff Barr of AWS notes in a blog post that the growth came despite new features added by Amazon at the end of the year for expiring and deleting objects.

We spotted the chart on GigaOM.
