Amazon Web Services Announces S3 Glacier Deep Archive

By Suprotik Sinha - March 29, 2019 2 Mins Read

AWS has announced the availability of S3 Glacier Deep Archive, a storage class that provides secure and durable object storage for long-term retention of data. S3 Glacier Deep Archive offers the lowest cost storage in the cloud, at $0.00099 per GB-month.

Organizations in financial services, healthcare, and government are required to retain data for long periods to meet regulatory compliance requirements.  Organizations such as media and entertainment companies keep a backup copy of core intellectual property. These datasets are large, consisting of multiple petabytes, and only a small percentage of this data is accessed—once or twice a year at most. For retaining data for a long-term, many organizations turn to on-premises magnetic tape libraries or offsite tape archival services.

“We have customers who have exabytes of storage locked away on tape, who are stuck in managing tape infrastructure for the event of data retrieval. S3 Glacier Deep opens up rarely accessed storage for analysis whenever the business needs it, without having to deal with the infrastructure or logistics of tape access,” said Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec, Amazon Web Services VP of S3.

Veritas is an AWS Partner Network Advanced Storage competency partner in data protection and software-defined storage solutions over the years. Cameron Bahar, SVP & CTO, at Veritas, said “Our customers need to be able to harness the power of their information with solutions designed to serve the heterogeneous environments while accelerating digital transformation, reducing risk, and delivering cost savings.  “With Veritas solutions supporting AWS, we continue to extend our support for cloud usage models and provide our customers a simple solution to solve data management issues for backup, archiving primary storage, and disaster recovery cases.”
