Amazon Glacier Select allows queries to run directly on data stored in Amazon Glacier without having to retrieve the entire archive. Pricing for this feature is based upon the total amount of data scanned, the amount of data returned by Amazon Glacier Select, and the number of Amazon Glacier Select requests initiated.

Pricing for each of these metrics is determined by the speed at which data is requested based on three options. "Expedited" queries <250 MB are typically returned in 1-5 minutes. "Standard" queries are typically returned in 3-5 hours. "Bulk" queries are typically returned in 5-12 hours.

Request pricing is noted in the retrieval request pricing table.
