Amazon, with it’s latest announcement of a new cloud storage – Amazon Glacier, promises to revolutionize the digital archiving and long term archival business needs.
“Amazon Glacier has been designed for the data that needs to remain operational for decades if not centuries,” pointing to the high level of reliability that Amazon is aiming for with their new service. Werner Vogels, Amazon CTO
Glacier’s real crux of this offering being low pricing with $ 0.01/GB/month and reliability has sent the small and medium business market segment buzzing with a lot of excitement. Glacier is primarily targeted as a data archival storage with lower recovery time.
