Amazon Glacier is now available in the South America (Sao Paulo) AWS Region



Amazon Glacier is now available in the AWS South America (Sao Paulo) Region. Customers use Amazon Glacier to archive data for long term retention, for compliance, and to back up content that is infrequently accessed. Amazon Glacier can be used directly through the AWS Management Console; the AWS software development kits (SDKs) for Java, .NET, PHP, or Python; the Amazon Glacier API directly; or by using S3 Lifecycle policies to move existing objects stored in Amazon S3 to Amazon Glacier for archival storage. With this expansion, Amazon Glacier is now available in all AWS Regions.
