Amazon S3 Intelligent-Tiering

[35/100] #100DaysOfCloud Today, I created an Amazon S3 bucket, uploaded objects to the Amazon S3 Intelligent-Tiering storage class and activated the optional Deep Archive Access tier.

The Amazon S3 Intelligent-Tiering storage class is designed to optimize storage costs by automatically moving data to the most cost-effective access tier when access patterns change. For a small monthly object monitoring and automation charge, S3 Intelligent-Tiering monitors access patterns and automatically moves objects that have not been accessed to lower-cost access tiers. S3 Intelligent-Tiering delivers automatic storage cost savings in three low-latency and high-throughput access tiers. For data that can be accessed asynchronously, you can choose to activate automatic archiving capabilities within the S3 Intelligent-Tiering storage class. There are no retrieval charges in S3 Intelligent-Tiering. If an object in the Infrequent or Archive Instant Access tier is accessed later, it’s automatically moved back to the Frequent Access tier. No additional tiering charges apply when objects are moved between access tiers within the S3 Intelligent-Tiering storage class.

  • The Infrequent Access tier saves up to 40% on storage costs
  • The Archive Instant Access tier saves up to 68% on storage costs
  • Opt-in asynchronous archive capabilities for objects that become rarely accessed
  • Archive Access and Deep Archive Access tiers have the same performance as S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval and S3 Glacier Deep Archive and save up to 95% for rarely accessed objects
