Today at re:Invent, Amazon introduced the new archive storage class called Amazon S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval, and we’re happy to announce that it’s now supported in CloudBerry Backup 7.2.3 and CloudBerry Explorer 6.2.1.
Amazon S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval is the lowest-cost storage for rarely accessed workloads with immediate access to data and millisecond retrieval

- Amazon S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval (formerly S3 Glacier)
- Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive
