When a storage gateway is configured as a Virtual Tape Library, it uses Glacier to store data. If you want to retrieve data from a "tape", does the standard Glacier retrieval times (3-5 hours) still apply?
AWS Storage Gateway as a VTL
I hope all is well. Great question !!
If you archive a tape in GLACIER, you can retrieve the tape typically within 3-5 hours. If you archive the tape in DEEP_ARCHIVE, you can retrieve it typically within 12 hours.
Hope that helps.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
