(Best Syndication News) - Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS) announced the launch of Amazon Glacier, which is a service for data archiving and backup. AWS is owned by Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). The archiving backup service is a low cost solution with pricing scales depending on how much storage space is used.

The cost of Amazon Glacier is as low as $0.01/GB/month. The scalability of paying for what you use is different from other backup storage services. Customers do not have to overpay for what they do not use.

Customers might want to archive digital media, financial, and medical records. Businesses might want to backup their company database.

Amazon Glacier has storage sites in the US-East (N. Virginia), US-West (N. California), US-West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo) and EU-West (Ireland) Regions. The price rates are listed at http://aws.amazon.com/glacier/.
