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.

Well Suited: weather issues, disciplinary actions, accidental deletes, or accidental file placements.

Pros

  • Easy to transfer files
  • 24/7 availablity

  • This tool allows us to always back up emails and files in case of power outages. Here in Florida we get them a lot and the backup batteries don't kick in.
  • When workers try to hide emails that they shouldn't we can always go back and find them.

Cons

  • Low availability
  • Only access to files in small timeframes

  • I really don't have any cons for this program. It's something every business should utilize. Only thing I can think of is sometimes you find things you don't necessarily want to.

Usability

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.

Gmail backup is easier to use, I still can't figure out the Apple iCloud.

Return on Investment

  • Inexpensive storage.
  • Ease of mind to know you still have the data somewhere in case you need it.
  • Set it and forget it (until you need it).

  • We have caught employees lying about email usage in the past.
  • ROI is high, always being able to track where your emails/ files go is important.
