Amazon Glacier is a storage service optimized for infrequently used data, or "cold data." The service provides secure, durable, and extremely low-cost storage for data archiving and backup. With Amazon Glacier, you can store your data cost effectively for months, years, or even decades. Amazon Glacier enables you to offload the administrative burdens of operating and scaling storage to AWS, so you don't have to worry about capacity planning, hardware provisioning, data replication, hardware failure detection and recovery, or time-consuming hardware migrations. For more service highlights and pricing information, go to the Amazon Glacier detail page.
