Glacier Calculator JS Link

A simple little JS based calculator to figure out exactly what data storage and retrieval on Amazon Glacier will cost. Just imagine if Amazon had something this useful.

It really gives a feel for how much retrieval priority changes the cost. Sure, storing 1TB of data on Amazon Glacier would only cost me about $10/mo. Retrieving that data will cost between $1200 and $600. I always factor in the retrieval costs. Otherwise, I’m just paying a monthly fee to delete my data.
