Product Benefits

AWS offers a complete range of services for you to store, access, govern, and analyze your data to reduce costs, increase agility, and accelerate innovation. 

Durability and Scalability

The Amazon S3 Glacier and S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage classes run on the world’s largest global cloud infrastructure, and were designed for 99.999999999% of durability. Data is automatically distributed across a minimum of three physical Availability Zones that are geographically separated within an AWS Region.

Backup and Recovery

AWS can be utilized as an effective resource for backing up cloud-based workloads. Data can
be securely imported into Amazon S3 or Amazon Glacier, which are generally much more cost effective storage targets than on-premises storage arrays.

Cost Effective

AWS offers scalable solutions to let you pay only for what you use. There is no need to provision storage in advance and there are no minimum commitments or up-front fees with Amazon EFS.
