We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Basically, I set Wasabi up and forget it. I'll monitor it every once in a while just to make sure that it's working correctly."
"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."
"I don't have enough experience to understand the nuances of where they might improve."
"There is no license, you pay for what you use."
"Amazon S3 Glacier is much cheaper than competing products."
"I can only tell you that Wasabi costs about half what Amazon Web Services is charging. Now, the cost per month is a more difficult question. That varies depending on the capacity, the services you're employing, and that type of thing."
