See how Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive offers the lowest cost storage in the cloud, at prices significantly lower than storing and maintaining data in on-premises magnetic tape libraries or archiving data offsite.

Speaker(s): Rob Czarnecki, Principal Product Manager, AWS

April 24, 2019

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (PT)

Register Now

To retain data long-term, many organizations turn to on-premises magnetic tape libraries or offsite tape archival services. However, maintaining this tape infrastructure is expensive, difficult, and time-consuming: tapes degrade if not properly stored and require multiple copies, frequent validation, and periodic refreshes to maintain data durability. Now, with Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, you can retain petabytes of data for long periods and eliminate both the cost and management of tape infrastructure, while ensuring that their data is preserved for future use and accessible within 12 hours, if needed. In this tech talk, we will dive deep into the Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage class and discuss the common use cases around long-term data protection, DR, and digital preservation. We will explore the integrations with S3, including object tagging, server-side encryption including customer-managed keys, cross-region replication, WORM, storage class analysis, and lifecycle policies. We will demonstrate how to ingest large data sets into S3 Glacier Deep Archive, using S3 APIs, AWS Management Console and Tape Gateway, a cloud-based virtual tape library feature of AWS Storage Gateway. Lastly, we will present the retrieval options and pricing model and work through customer scenarios on why S3 Glacier Deep Archive is the lowest cost storage in the cloud.

Learning Objectives:

  • Dive deep into S3 Glacier Deep Archive and understand its use cases, integrations with other AWS services, approaches to ingesting data, retrieval options, and pricing model
  • Explore how to optimize storage costs amongst the S3 storage classes, especially for long-term data retention and digital preservation
  • Understand the economic benefits of S3 Glacier based on real customer scenarios

Who Should Attend:
