This TYPO3 CMS extension does not do anything itself. It acts as a "wrapper" for the AWS SDK for PHP software and provides AWS services to developers.
It is important to understand that there are significant differences between AWS SDK for PHP version 2 and version 3. Please carefully read and undestand the differences and the official Migration Guide, if you are updating from version 2.
A SDK (software development kit) is a set of software development tools which provide functions for other applications (e.g. other TYPO3 extensions). In this case, the extension EXT:aws_sdk_php builds an interface between TYPO3 CMS and AWS' services. The extension and AWS SDK for PHP enables PHP developers to use Amazon Web Services in their PHP code and build TYPO3 frontend and backend extensions using services like Amazon S3, Amazon Route 53, Amazon RDS, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Glacier, etc.
