CloudBerry’s backup solution has added Amazon Glacier support. Read on for details.
CloudBerry has added support for Amazon’s Glacier service, which is lower cost than S3. Here is what CloudBerry announced:
Amazon Glacier, a secure, reliable and low cost storage service designed for data archiving and backup. In order to keep costs low, Amazon Glacier is optimized for data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval times of several hours are suitable. With Amazon Glacier, you can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month.
The latest release of CloudBerry Backup comes with full support for Amazon Glacier. Using the product you can move your files to Glacier vaults taking advantage of the extremely low cost storage .
Note. Current version of CloudBerry Backup doesn’t allow you:
1. Restore the files stored in Glacier Vaults and updated version with the Glacier restore is coming shortly. You should use CloudBerry Explorer to restore the files
2. Doesn’t allows you to encrypt and compress files yet. This is also coming in the future release.
This is good news as Amazon S3 can get a little pricey, but I think I would wait to jump on this until encryption is fully implemented. If you are interested, cruise on over to CloudBerry and check it out!CloudBerry Blog Post
