Yup glacier is subsumed under S3 now. Essentially I'm looking only at VM import/export for cheap off-site storage. About a buck per tb. I'm strictly using this as a consumer and not doing this for horizontal scaling purposes so won't be heading towards EC2.

The original intent really is to abstract myself from my hardware hv a off-site snapshot.

peeling thru VMware workstation documentation at the moment to see if I can automate the off-site snapshot.
be noted that while glacier is subsumed under s3, it is purely technical feature and marketing. the cost to retrieve from glacier still exists as before. Retrieving from glacier before 90 day maturity has penalty and not immediate too. If it is for archival, that is fine, but if it is for thinking glacier cost less, you will be surprised
