Just a thought of having separate servers for database and web landed me on the following links:

Just searched for Amazon S3 clients and found two good file management solutions compared to other such apps.
1. S3 Fox – Mozilla Addon – S3Fox Organizer helps you organize/manage/store your files on Amazon S3. It is easy to install and use as it is integrated into the browser.
2. CloudBerry S3 Explorer – CloudBerry Explorer makes managing files in Amazon S3 storage easy. By providing a user interface to Amazon S3 accounts, files, and buckets, CloudBerry lets you manage your files on cloud just as you would on your own local computer.
