The Missing Amazon Glacier Cost-Estimator Calculator

Go to the calculator

What

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

The calculator is hosted here.

Why

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.)

Who

This version was created by brandt
Based on original work by liangzan

How

Built with AngularJS
Theme by orderedlist

Disclaimer

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.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
