Featured | Written by: Stephen Withers | Published in: Cloud ComputingAmazon Glacier, the latest offering from Amazon Web Services, is said to provide low-cost, secure and durable archival data storage.
Google has dropped cloud storage pricing 20 percent, has added a set of new features, and is expanding its availability in Europe — all in advance of rival Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) first major event this week in Las Vegas.
With the drop in pricing, Google is offering a new service called Durable Reduced Availability Storage, a service that allows people to store data at a lower price
Does anyone know if there is a Ubuntu tool yet for storing archives using Amazon Glacier?
The price point for Glacier seems to be low enough, $0.01 USD per gig/month, I'm considering archiving my photo collection on there as an offsite backup, but hoping there is something like rsync to do it.
I have an opportunity to spend a couple days at Glacier later this month. I'm thinking about driving up from Butte and hiking to Grinnell Glacier and back down on the first day (staying at St. Mary on the east side).
My Ubuntu pc has a separate home encrypted partition with a lot of important personal data (photos etc.). I now want to backup this partition to Amazon Glacier (which is really cheap @ 1 cent/GB/month).
They claim to have some kind of API, which I can't find a lot of information about. Does anybody possibly have experience on doing something like this?
