Amazon S3 is reducing the cost to move data to Amazon S3 Glacier by lowering PUT and Lifecycle request charges by 40% for all AWS Regions. You can use the S3 PUT API to directly store compliance and backup data in S3 Glacier that does not require immediate access. You can also use S3 Lifecycle policies to move data from S3 Standard, S3 Standard-Infrequent Access, or S3 One Zone-Infrequent Access to S3 Glacier to save on storage costs when data becomes rarely accessed.
