A CDE Definition
Amazon's cloud storage for archival data. Glacier storage is extremely inexpensive per gigabyte per month; however, unlike Amazon's S3 service, Glacier is intended for very infrequent retrieval as downloading can take hours rather than seconds. See S3 cloud storage.
S3 cloud storage
(Simple Storage Service) Internet-based storage from Amazon.com, which is used for backup and content delivery. Like most cloud computing services, S3 is employed by both large and small software developers and content publishers because its fees are based on the number of bytes downloaded per month. S3 is part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) family. See EC2 and Amazon Glacier.
