[Hub] Backups: Move old backups to AWS Glacier #208
I looked into this and the issue is that while storing backups to glacier is easy and cheap restoring them is potentially super expensive, in a really unintuitive way. You can restore a few percent of your glacier storage cheaply but if you need to restore a big chunk in a hurry you may end up paying thousands of dollars in extra fees. To prevent nasty surprises we would have to educate users about that, which complicates things.
