Data Archive on AWS
Amazon Web Services offers a broad set of cloud storage services for archiving. Depending on your needs, you can choose Amazon Glacier for affordable, non-time sensitive cloud storage, or Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for faster storage.
Backup tape replacement
AWS Cloud storage solutions make it easy to manage the backup process, and allow you to focus on the storage of your data, rather than the management of your tape systems and library. This leads to greater cost savings and efficiency.
AWS Cloud storage solutions meet common compliance standards, achieve security certifications, and offer built-in encryption; helping ensure your data storage meets your business requirements.
Media asset archival
With the growing volume of media assets, AWS’s cloud storage solutions are cost effective. Amazon’s scalable infrastructure allows you to archive as much data as you want.
Affordable storage for increased savings
Starting at just $0.01/GB/month, Amazon Glacier provides an affordable solution that reduces the operational costs associated with maintaining legacy data storage infrastructure, such as tape management, security, and manual data transfer.
Global data protection for secured data
Amazon Glacier and Amazon S3 support secure transfer of your data over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and can automatically encrypt your stored data using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit symmetric keys.
Easy data transfer
AWS cloud storage solutions are designed to simplify the complexity that may occur when moving your data to the cloud. AWS Import/Export enables large volume data transfer from your on-premises infrastructure to Amazon Web Services through the shipment of physical drives. AWS Storage Gateway allows you to build a virtual tape library for Amazon S3 or virtual tape shelf for Amazon Glacier, providing cost savings by moving data to the cloud and providing easy archive storage options.
Control your own data
The AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) service lets you control who has access to your data, granting access as you see fit, to ensure better security and control. In addition, AWS Direct Connect provides dedicated private network connection for moving data between your on-premises infrastructure and AWS.
Increased durability for your data
You data is available when you need it. AWS’s cloud storage services are designed to deliver data durability of 99.999999999% by storing multiple copies of your data across multiple facilities.
