Amazon Glacier Data Destination

 

About

The Amazon Glacier data destination sends submitted forms to an Amazon Glacier "Vault".  Create custom file and folder names based on data in the form to logically organize and manage files.

Data destinations automatically back up data collected in the field.  They reduce the need to visit the web portal by making submitted forms available through the services you already use.  Different documents can also be sent to different services with a single form submission.  Read here for more information on data destinations.

Amazon Glacier is a low-cost web service for data archiving and backup.  Glacier is intended for storing data that is accessed infrequently, and for which longer retrieval times of 3-5 hours are acceptable.
