Amazon has two products commonly used for backup and archiving, Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier. Review those cloud service offerings and determine which option best meets the needs for BallotOnline’s backups and archiving requirements.

After you have aligned the workload requirements with the appropriate cloud service offering, discuss the differences and why S3 is more commonly used for backup while Glacier is more commonly used for deep archiving in Discussion: Rationale for Your Cloud Service Offering Selection. Afterward, write a one-page summary of your rationale. This will be part of the final runbook submitted at the end of the project.
