Most organizations have data that they need to retain, but is accessed infrequently, if ever. In cases where this data needs to be accessible at a moment’s notice, it’s hard to save money by moving to an archival storage because access times on these platforms are slower. Now, customers are using Amazon S3 & Glacier for “Active Archiving” to reduce storage costs while maintaining the flexibility of instant access. In this tech talk, we’ll show you how implement Active Archiving with AWS Object Storage services, and we’ll provide some real world examples of how AWS customers are saving money with these capabilities today.
• Define Active Archiving, and understand how it is different from traditional cold archiving
• Review the cost modeling tools available to determine if Active Archiving is a good fit for your organization
• Learn about best practices for using AWS Object Storage features & functionality to enable Active Archiving
