Re: Please Recommend Affordable and Reliable Cloud Storage for 50 TB of Data

I can't say it any better than the previous poster. Simply add that retrieval from Glacier is straightforward but annoying. You also need to be ok with day-plus turnaround for very large retrievals.

 Glacier has two costs, one for storage and one for retrieval.  Uploading data
 to Glacier is free. Storage pricing is simple: it currently costs 0.4 cents per
 gigabyte per month, which is 82% cheaper than S3 Standard.

 In 2016, AWS revised their retrieval pricing model.[16] The new model bases
 the retrieval fee on the number of gigabytes retrieved. This can amount to a
 99% price cut for users who perform only one glacier retrieval in a month. At
 the same time, AWS introduced new methods of retrieval that take different
 amounts of time. An expedited retrieval costs one cent per request and three
 cents per gigabyte, and can retrieve data in one to five minutes. A standard
 retrieval costs five cents per thousand requests and one cent per gigabyte, and
 takes three to five hours. A bulk retrieval costs 2.5 cents per thousand
 requests and 0.25 cents per gigabyte, and takes seven to twelve hours. AWS also
 introduced provisioned capacity for expedited retrievals, each unit of which
 costs $100 per month and guarantees at least three expedited retrievals every
 five minutes, and up to 150 MB/s of retrieval bandwidth. Without provisioned
 capacity, expedited retrievals are done on a capacity available basis.

Happy storage.
