Amazon Glacier

We have backed up all of our company's long-term data on Amazon Glacier and we've recently begun experimenting with setting up consultants' workspace on amazon glacier. This will allow us to keep a separation between core employees' work and temporary workers. As we keep expanding we are excited to see other ways we can leverage Glacier.

Upsafe Free Gmail Backup

If your company is using a lot of G-suite products such as Gmail, Google Drive, etc..., it's easy to backup your important documentations and texts from email via Free Gmail Backup. You can also schedule your backup automatically. Very easy to use. One downside is this is only for Google users.

Cons

  • Enumeration of data takes hours. In order to get data back you'll need to do inventory of the bucket, but that takes a few hours to complete.
  • Data and bucket deletion also requires inventory. Moreover, it is not possible to delete a bucket that has been recently written to - making bucket deletion a lengthy ordeal: first, you perform inventory, then delete your files, but you cannot delete the bucket as you recently deleted files, so you have to wait for another day in order to delete the bucket itself.
  • While data storage is cheap and easy, data retrieval can be expensive as you only get a download quota that is a few percent of your storage.

  • No improvement suggestions that I can think of right now.

It is difficult to delete the data as you have to wait for inventory and then bucket modification has to expire.

Alternatives Considered

Since the rest of our infrastructure is in Amazon AWS, coding for sending data to Glacier just makes sense. The others are great as well, for their specific needs and uses, but having *another* third-party software to manage, be billed for, and learn/utilize can be costly in money and time.

We didn't consider other products because we use a lot of Google products so it makes sense to choose Free Gmail Backup.

Return on Investment

  • Cheap backup storage - up to the level where it becomes only tiny fractions of your entire project, whereas other solutions would be much more expensive.
  • The established reliability of AWS also makes you sleep better at night knowing your data is going to be OK.

  • It has helped us store lots of confidential information.
  • We can restore selected messages very easily and quickly within seconds.
