Using S3Guard for Consistent S3 Metadata

S3Guard mitigates the issues related to S3's eventual consistency on listings by using a table on Amazon DynamoDB as a consistent metadata store. This guarantees a consistent view of data stored in S3. In addition, S3Guard may improve query performance by reducing the number of times S3 needs to be contacted, —as DynamoDB is significantly faster.
