AWS Glacier

We are currently have a large amount of data we want to back up to a safe location. All of our IT infrastructure including servers and storage (Dell EMC) are located on premise. We have a gateway server that allows our servers to connect to the Internet. The data doesn't need to be accessible constantly. We only need to retrieve the data when there is a catastrophic event on premise. We are looking into AWS Glacier as our solution; however, we have couple concerns:

. Can we just use the AWS Glacier service without using any other AWS services to upload and to retrieve our data?
. Our data is currently located on an Isilon that doesn't have direct access to the outside Internet? Can we set up so that we can upload/retrieve data from the Isilon to AWS Glacier?
. The files and folders we want to back up to AWS contain very large graphic files. The files can go up to couple hundred Gibs. Will speed be an issue?

I a m not a AWS specialist .

Can we just use the AWS Glacier service without using any other AWS services to upload and to retrieve our data? -

Yes The AWS Management Console allows you to create and configure vaults, allowing you to easily and quickly setup Glacier.


Our data is currently located on an Isilon that doesn't have direct access to the outside Internet? Can we set up so that we can upload/retrieve data from the Isilon to AWS Glacier?

 Then you have to connect this network to be protected with a router to internet and only allow needed port . Then you  can communicate with AWS.

The files and folders we want to back up to AWS contain very large graphic files. The files can go up to couple hundred Gibs. Will speed be an issue?-

If you have a decent internet dedicated internet connection atleast( 1:1 -upload is also need priority in this case).then there no problem .you only need to retrieve the data when there is a catastrophic event on premise then speed will not be an issue and AWS S3 Glacier individual archives can be from 1 byte to 40 terabytes.
