Amazon Glacier is a cloud based storage service that is optimized for data archiving and backup. The service is meant for data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval times of several hours are suitable. Amazon Glacier functionality is available via an API. With the API users can create vaults to organize the archives uploaded to Glacier, upload and retrieve archives, monitor the status of Amazon Glacier jobs and configure a vault to send a notification via the Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) when a job is complete. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
