I want to keep my media files, all files in the "default/files" folder in the Amazon S3 account. I've opened the "admin/config/media/file-system" page and there is the "Public file system path" field, which by default is set to sites/default/files.

I can't imagine how can I connect my Amazon account with this file system path.

I'm using Drupal 7.
