This getting started exercise provides step-by-step instructions for you to explore basic Amazon Glacier operations on the vaults and archives resources described in the Amazon Glacier Data Model section.
In the getting started exercise you will create a vault, upload and download an archive, and finally delete the archive and the vault. You can do all these operations programmatically. However, the getting started exercise uses Amazon Glacier console to create and delete a vault. For uploading and downloading an archive, this getting started section uses the AWS Software Development Kits (SDKs) for Java and .NET high-level API. The high-level API provides a simplified programming experience when working with Amazon Glacier. For more information about these APIs, see Using the AWS SDKs with Amazon Glacier.
The last section of the getting started provides you steps where you can deep dive and learn more about the developer experience with Amazon Glacier.
Amazon Glacier provides a management console. You can use the console to create and delete vaults as shown in this getting started exercise. However, all other interactions with Amazon Glacier require programming. For example, to upload data, such as photos, videos, and other documents, you will need to write code and make requests using either the REST API directly or the AWS SDK for Java and .NET wrapper libraries. This getting started exercise provides code examples in Java and C# for you to upload and download an archive.
