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="http://xml.vidispine.com/schema/vidispine">
  <type>ARCHIVE</type>
  <bean>GlacierBean</bean>
  <capacity>100000000000000</capacity>
  <metadata>
    <field>
      <key>glacierVaultName</key>
      <value>{vault name}</value>
    </field>
    <field>
      <key>glacierEndpoint</key>
      <value>https://glacier.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/</value>
    </field>
  </metadata>
</StorageDocument>

 

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 AwsCredentials.properties under glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1 with format:
secretKey=yourkey
accessKey=yourkey

 

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