Amazon S3 Glacier Review

Reasonably priced with a good licensing model, and no installation is required


What is our primary use case?

We use Amazon S3 Glacier for HPE 3PAR saving, content restoration, and deep storage for hosted data storage.

What is most valuable?

We like that the price is cheaper.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the retrieval time reduced. You have to wait a day to get your data. 

You have to wait for six servers and generate your request to get your data out. If that time period could be reduced to an hour that would be an advantage.

It would be helpful to have an Emulator tool to mount the storage without the need for a third party. Normally, when we mount Amazon s3 Glacier onto, an on-premises solution we need the Emulator tool. It would be great if there was direct access to mount it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Amazon S3 for two years.

It's a cloud-based solution. We are always using the latest version.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never communicated with technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are working with the standard Amazon S3, and Amazon S3 Glacier.

Previously, we did not work with any other solution. Amazon S3 Glacier was the first one that we used.

How was the initial setup?

It's a cloud-based solution, there is no installation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is no license, you pay for what you use.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to other users who are interested in using it.

I would rate Amazon S3 Glacier an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
