Commvault debuted support for Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive in unison with Amazon Web Services. With Commvault, you can transport backups and archives stored on tape directly to Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive. The most complete data protection platform for on-premises and cloud workloads is Commvault. It can handle backup, recovery, and e-discovery. Amazon’s new storage class Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, offers the lowest cost cloud storage at under $1 per TB/mo.

When long-term data retention is necessary for corporate policy, contractual, or regulatory compliance needs, Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive is the best storage class to use. It may also be used to provide offline security for your company’s most valuable data assets. This is partially due to Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, which offers retrieval within 12 hours at the Standard retrieval speed and is up to 75% less expensive than S3 Glacier. You may also lower retrieval expenses by choosing bulk retrieval, which will deliver data in 48 hours.

Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive is made with the same 99.99999999% durability and 99.9% availability standards as the S3 Standard and S3 Glacier storage classes.

Customers may migrate data from on-premises to AWS using the native support provided by the Commvault data platform for Amazon S3/ S3-IA, Amazon S3 Glacier, Amazon S3 Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS), Snowball, and Snowball Edge. Customers can now do away with on-premises tape libraries, manage hardware refreshes, and no longer need to rewrite data to new tapes as technology advances, thanks to Commvault and Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive.

Simply choose the Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage type when setting up your cloud library.

Commvault offers in-cloud protection once in the cloud for everything from EC2 instances, RDS instances, EBS snap management, and cross-region data replication. Without needing a storage gateway, Commvault can write directly to various Amazon storage classes, including S3, SIA, RRS, Glacier, and now Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive.

Note about security

The integrity of the data must be protected when transported across the network in any cloud storage system. The following elements of cloud storage safeguard the data’s integrity:

The HTTPS protocol is the default used to send data via secure channels.
The FIPS 140-2 certified data encryption function of the Commvault platform further safeguards the data by offering client-side encryption both in flight and at rest.

Data backup, application migration, e-discovery, disaster recovery, virtual machine lifecycle management, compliance, and legal holds are all features that Commvault delivers from a single platform. You can be sure that your data in S3 Glacier Deep Archive (as well as all other AWS storage classes) is safe and accessible in the cloud, thanks to the depth and breadth of the Commvault data platform and the wide range of storage services offered by AWS.
