We are pleased to introduce a new storage option for Amazon S3 that enables you to utilize Amazon Glacier’s extremely low-cost storage service for data archival. Amazon Glacier stores data for as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month, and is optimized for data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval times of several hours are suitable. With the new Amazon Glacier storage option for Amazon S3, you can define rules to automatically archive sets of Amazon S3 objects to Amazon Glacier for even lower cost storage.
The Amazon Glacier storage option for Amazon S3 is currently available in the US-Standard, US-West (N. California), US-West (Oregon), EU-West (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Japan) Regions. You can learn more by visiting the Amazon S3 Developer Guide or joining our Dec 12 webinar.
