Amazon S3 Glacier Valuable Features

The solution is great for storing data you don't usually need access to. It's also well-integrated with Amazon S3. You store data in S3 and you create a policy that if this data is not accessed very frequently or if the data is not used, it will move that data from high storage to low storage. Cost-wise, it means great savings. If I'm paying $10 in internal storage, it will move to Glacier where I only pay less than a cent. You can push the data which you need, say once every two months or once every three months. That's the kind of data you can push into Glacier, not the data which you use every day or twice in a week.
