  • Amazon Glacier

    Commercial Web Website

    Amazon Glacier is a low-cost online storage web service that provides reliable storage for data archiving and backup.Amazon Glacier is designed for data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval times of 3 to 5 hours are acceptable. Storage costs as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month. Amazon hopes this new service will move businesses from on-premise tape backup drives to cloud-based backup storage.ZDNet says, that according to private e-mail, Glacier runs on "inexpensive commodity hardware components", which are suggested to be high numbers of high-capacity low-cost hard discs. It is possible, that custom low-RPM hard drives are used in custom racks with proprietary logic.An unlimited amount of data can be uploaded. Downloading data (retrieval) is free unless more than 5% of the stored data is downloaded per month, in which case there is a fee of $0.01 per GB. Data transfer between AWS regions is free up to 1 GB per month, after which a sliding scale fee starts at $0.12 per GB. Data stored less than 3 months incurs a charge of $0.03 per GB.

  • Tarsnap

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    Work on Tarsnap began in September 2006 when the author, Dr. Colin Percival, decided that he wanted a better online backup service than was presently available. After slightly more than two years of development and private beta testing, Tarsnap officially entered public beta in November 2008, and attained profitability in February 2009. In September 2011, Tarsnap Backup Inc. was incorporated in British Columbia, Canada.

    The Tarsnap client code is built around the open source libarchive archive handling library. While the Tarsnap code is not distributed under an open source license, Tarsnap contributes back to the open source community via bug fixes and enhancements to libarchive (40 commits and counting) and by releasing entirely new code where possible (e.g., the scrypt key derivation function and file encryption code).

    At the present time, the Tarsnap service is provided using infrastructure from Amazon Web Services.
