I'm using Amazon Glacier for the first time with a client using Veeam backup.  I'm not getting very high speeds and searches of the Amazon forums and FAQ's have not directly answered the question.

What are expected upload speeds using Amazon Glacier?

I'm getting no more than 600K up from my desktop.  The server in question floats around 300K.

Thanks
Fred

What's your internet link? If you're using ADSL, the outgoing traffic is much slower than incoming. You can buy a dedicated WAN link into Glacier if you need high bandwidth.

BTW - have you considered what a restore from Glacier is going to cost you? A 1TB restore will set you back $120 US.

What is your broadband speed?

Is that 600KBytes/sec or 600Kbits/sec as Duncan said the "A" in ADSL means Asynchronous and that means your upload speed is typically much slower than your down load speed (i am currently on a 10Mb/5Mb circuit, but as thats at home, its a 50:1 contention ratio as well)

Asymmetrical rather than asynchronous, but I'm splitting acronymy hairs

Transaction-level recovery for Oracle database

Veeam Explore for Oracle delivers low RTOs and RPOs with agentless transaction log backup and transaction-level recovery of Oracle databases. You can restore the database to a precise point in time, even to a specific transaction.

Veeam reports the speed, right now, as around 300KB/sec.   The NIC is saturated claiming 3.2MBps on the server.  

Yes, we have considered the restore costs.  Ideally, we'll never need to incur that cost ;)

I get the same from Telepcific Bonded T1's at 4.5Mpbs, and Unwired at 12/3mpbs

Thanks

NB de facto standard nomclemature "B" = Bytes, "b" = bits

so 3.2Mbits/sec = 320KBytes/sec

For comms links use 10 bits per Byte, so Telepacific = 450KB/s and Unwired @1.2MB/0.3MB

Are you saying it doesnt matter what speed link you use, you only get 300KB/sec?

We ended up boosting the speed on the circuit/.
