Today Amazon announced Amazon Glacier. As an Amazon Web Services customer, I received the following email which highlights the new service: I'm currently using Carbonite, which works out to be a even a bit cheaper for my needs, but Glacier looks like another great option for archiving digital media affordably. If you don't currently have a backup plan for your precious photos, I strongly encourage you to take action right away, especially if your all of your photos are sitting on a single hard drive without a backup. At a minimum, have a second local copy. Better still is to have a local backup as well as an offsite backup like Carbonite or Glacier.
