Back up data with Amazon Glacier

I haven’t posted in awhile but I thought this was worth getting on to share:

Amazon Glacier, as the new service is known, stores a copy of your data in archived format for less than a penny per gigabyte per month. The only catch is that getting the data back out can take some time since Glacier is primarily intended for backup and long-term storage.

Sounds perfect for what I would use it for! I’m not sure if it’s for enterprise solutions only, but I may check this out in the future.

See more on the main page for Amazon Glacier or their press release.
