SlideShare: Cloud Archiving – Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure or Something Else?

Amazon Glacier seems like the ultimate archive; capacity costs are impressively cheap, it never has to be upgraded or replaced and all the data is off-site. The problem is at some point the organization is going to need to recover some specific set of data from that archive. At that point, the allure of Glacier wears off quickly because it is slow and recovery has to be done either through the command line or within software code. There is no self-service web-portal access to identify and retrieve specific content easily.

Microsoft’s Azure Archive Blob Storage with Blob-level Tiering is another alternative, and provides better flexibility for an archive project. But even it is not the 100% solution data centers want. The problem is both Amazon’s Glacier and Microsoft’s Archive tier are cloud infrastructure offerings that are not designed to be turnkey solutions. Instead, organizations looking to leverage the cloud for archiving should consider a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that builds on top of the cloud infrastructure, delivering a turnkey cloud archiving experience.
