Vidispine can archive files on Amazon Glacier. There are two different ways this can be achieved:

  • Creating a separate Glacier storage and move files from other storages there for archival.

  • Using an S3 storage and transition objects to the Glacier storage class

The XML document you should post looks like this:

<StorageDocument xmlns="">
      <value>{vault name}</value>

The rest of the details including how it relates to S3 are descrived in the API documentation for setting up Glacier.

Note, you should have a file under glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1 with format:



You can also configure com.vidispine.credentials.dir to have it under a different path which is documented in the system property section.
