Notes for AWS Glacier studying.

  • Lifecycle rules can be configured to archive or move files after a certain period of time to Glacier.
  • After a certain period of time Objects can be migrated to IA Storage and then to Glacier before being expired.
  • Lifecycle Management can be used in conjunction with versioning.
  • Can be applied to current versions of Objects as well as previous versions.
  • The Following actions can now be done:
    • Transition to the standard – IA Storage class. (128KB and 30 days after the creation date).
    • Archive to the Glacier Storage Class. (30 days after IA, if relevant).
  • Glacier is not available in Singpapore or South America.
  • You can permanently delete objects using life-cycle management policies.
