I just came across this resource, but late this summer, Amazon AWS released their new product: Glacier, which is a cloud storage service for backing up heavy data. With costs as low as $.01/month for 1GB storage, it scales inexpensively for large sites.
Lately, I’ve been working on sites with larger data and backup requirements. In researching improved backup solutions, I ran across AWS Glacier.
I haven’t used it yet, but am looking to setup an account and try it out for my personal data before I start using it on client websites. Most WordPress websites don’t have gigantic data stores, but if you run a shopping cart, have thousands of subscribers, or years worth of posts, this might be a considerable tool to use.
I know of a few news and commercial websites that might take advantage of this cheap storage to good value.
If you have experience working with AWS Glacier, let me know.
