Accessing Amazon Glacier
Alternatively, you can simplify application development by using the AWS SDKs that wrap the Amazon Glacier REST API calls. You provide your credentials, and these libraries take care of authentication and request signing. For more information about using the AWS SDKs, see Using the AWS SDKs with Amazon Glacier.
Amazon Glacier also provides a management console. You can use the console to create and delete vaults. However, all the archive and job operations require you to write code and make requests using either the REST API directly or the AWS SDK wrapper libraries. To access the Amazon Glacier console, go to Amazon Glacier Console.
Regions and Endpoints
You create a vault in a specific AWS regions. You always send your Amazon Glacier requests to a region-specific endpoint. For a list of the AWS regions supported by Amazon Glacier, go to Regions and Endpoints in the AWS General Reference.
