We are delighted to announce the addition of Amazon S3 Glacier Re:Freezer to the AWS Solutions Implementations portfolio. AWS Solutions Implementations help you solve common problems and build faster using the AWS platform.

Amazon S3 Glacier Re:Freezer is a serverless solution that automatically copies entire Amazon S3 Glacier vault archives to a defined destination Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket and S3 storage class. The solution automates the optimized restore, copy, and transfer process and provides a prebuilt Amazon CloudWatch dashboard to visualize the copy operation progress. Deploying this solution allows you to seamlessly copy your S3 Glacier vault archives to more cost effective storage locations such as the Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage class.

Copying your Amazon Glacier vault contents to the S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage class combines the low cost and high durability benefits of S3 Glacier Deep Archive, with the familiar Amazon S3 user and application experience that offers simple visibility and access to data. Once your archives are stored as objects in your Amazon S3 bucket, you can add tags to your data to enable items such as attributing data costs on a granular level.

Additional AWS Solutions Implementations are available on the AWS Solutions Implementations webpage, where you can browse technical reference implementations that are vetted by AWS architects, offering detailed architecture and instructions for deployment to help build faster to solve common problems.
