The Missing Amazon Glacier Cost-Estimator Calculator

Go to the calculator


An unofficial, hacked-together cost-estimator for Amazon's new, archival storage service, Glacier.

The calculator is hosted here.


Amazon hasn't yet provided us with a cost calculator for Glacier, and figuring out how their pricing model translates to real-world use isn't exactly straightforward.

Sometimes the best way to understand something complicated is to interact with it.

This tool helps elucidate the relationship between cost, data retention periods, and recovery scenarios. (See disclaimer below.)

This tool was built on quite a few assumptions and estimations. I can't attest to its accuracy. It's neither endorsed nor affiliated with Amazon AWS. The rates are referenced from the Glacier pricing page and Glacier FAQ.
