Move Glacier data to Deep Glacier

1

Is there anyway to move data that I have already backed up into Glacier into Deep Glacier?

Or do I have to upload it all again?

Thanks.

I had objects in a bucket with a lifecycle rule moving to glacier. I just updated the rule to move to deep archive and when I looked later everything, including the previously glacier objects, had been moved to deep archive. Be warned though, it will count that as deleting them from glacier when they are moved. I got hit with some early delete fees because of that.

Thanks for your reply.

I uploaded the data directly to Glacier using Fastglacier URL:http://fastglacier.com/

I didn't use the S3 console.

Can anybody hep with moving it to Deep Glacier?

Thanks.

S3 Glacier Deep Archive is an S3 storage class, it is not supported by the separate Glacier service where FastGlacier uploads data.

Thank you for your reply.

I would like to move this data from Glacier to S3 so I can then transition it to Deep Glacier.

What is the cheapest way to do it?

Download it to my PC and reupload it, or is there another way?

Ta.

There are three pieces to consider here. First, there will be a cost per object and per GB to restore your existing data from Glacier. Bulk retrievals will be the most cost effective option.

Second, as your archives are restored you can either download them to your local machine, which will include a per GB data transfer cost, or you can use an EC2 instance, container, or lambda function to move the data to S3 Glacier Deep Archive. Using an EC2 instance, container, or lambda function will save the data transfer cost, but include a cost for the EC2 instance, container, or lambda function.

Third, the PUT to Glacier Deep Archive will also include a per object cost.

I recommend considering the entire cost of the transition to determine if it's worthwhile to move your objects from the Glacier service to S3 Glacier Deep Archive.

Could you be more specific concerning the second phase?

EC2 instance, container or lambda function are some virtual machines if I get it right. So I should write some code to GET my data from Glacier and PUT them into S3 Glacier ? Some the simplest way to do it ?

Not sure why it's not an AWS built-in but: https://github.com/aws-solutions/amazon-s3-glacier-refreezer
