Archival Storage
Archival storage moves data into long-term archives with lower data storage rates. It is intended for data that must be retained and do not require immediate access.
Data transfer to and from archival storage incurs additional fees per Terabyte transferred in the move. Restoring data that have been archived for a short period of time can result in higher storage costs.
