Amazon S3 Glacier Storage Classes

Compressing and archiving logs to the Amazon S3 Glacier storage classes

In distributed architectures, there is often a need to preserve application logs, and for AWS customers preservation is often done via an Amazon S3 bucket. The logs may contain information on runtime transactions, error/failure states, or application metrics and statistics. These logs are later used in business intelligence to provide useful insights and generate dashboards, […]
