We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is great for storing data you don't usually need access to. It's also well-integrated with Amazon S3."
"I like the price. If you compare Glacier to others, the prices in terms of what you store beyond retention are much lower."
"We like that the price is cheaper."
"It's a scalable product."
"The interface is good."
"Replication and performance tuning are valuable features."
"The response times could be faster. When you are with Amazon and use Glacier, you expect a response time between four to seven hours to retrieve the data."
"I would like to see the retrieval time reduced."
"They should base their strategy according to the country and the regulations there, and focus more on the on-premises deployment."
"It's already fast, but still, they could improve the speed."
"Deployment is overly complex and could be streamlined."
"Amazon S3 Glacier is much cheaper than competing products."
"There is no license, you pay for what you use."
"It's an expensive solution and is an area that needs improvement."
"Price is always an area that could be made better, as it is quite expensive."
Amazon Glacier is a secure, durable, and extremely low-cost cloud storage service for data archiving and long-term backup. Customers can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.007 per gigabyte per month, a significant savings compared to on-premises solutions. To keep costs low, Amazon Glacier is optimized for infrequently accessed data where a retrieval time of several hours is suitable.
Oracle Database Backup Service is a secure, scalable, on-demand solution for storing Oracle Database backups in Oracle Cloud.
Oracle databases are backed up to Oracle Database Backup Service using the Oracle Database Cloud Backup Module. The module is available from Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and is tightly integrated with Recovery Manager (RMAN), so you can continue to use familiar RMAN commands for backup and restore operations.
