CloudBerry Lab has made an incremental update to its CloudBerry Explorer application, which aims to simplify file management on Amazon S3 so it’s as easy as managing files on local computers. Besides a few other small enhancements to the cloud application, the key addition to the v3.7 release is support for Amazon Glacier.
Essentially, the new Glacier-related features revolve around Amazon S3 archiving to Glacier, giving Amazon S3 users the option of using CloudBerry Explorer to archive data stored on S3 to low-cost Glacier storage.
Amazon Glacier, launched earlier this year, provides a low-cost storage option for companies looking for longer-term storage that doesn’t require the high-performance and fast access of storage that is continuously being used and modified.
The new CloudBerry feature is in line with a new feature that Amazon Web Services recently announced on its website. The “what’s new?” post outlines the ability for Amazon S3 customers to archive data to Amazon Glacier. Rules can be set up to automatically archive sets of Amazon S3 objects to Glacier — something partners may want to check out to simplify their customers’ own data archiving strategies.
Additionally, CloudBerry also supports the recently-announced AWS data center in Australia.
CloudBerry provides Explorer through a freemium strategy. A free version is available that provides customers with basic storage management capabilities like browsing, creating and deleting files, folders and buckets, and the ability to upload content from an end-user’s PC to Amazon S3 storage (and vice versa).
For those customers that need a little power and flexibility, there’s Explorer PRO, which has more advanced features. A paid license is priced at $39.99.
In August, CloudBerry launched Cloud Migrator, a service designed to make it easier to shift files between some of the largest cloud storage providers, including Amazon S3, Windows Azure Blob Storage, Rackspace Cloud Files, as well as FTP servers
