Amazon Glacier will be the future of online backups
I was pretty excited when Amazon first announced it’s new Glacier product. This offering allows archiving of data at $0.01 per GB per month with a 3-5 hour recovery time. Now they have added a feature to automatically archive S3 storage to glacier based on rules set by admins. I haven’t used it yet, but it seems that CloudBerry will be first tool for SMB’s to check out when exploring online backup. For $79.99, their Server offering seems to be a great deal. We will be testing this in our new lab at Hurricane Electric soon.
