Uploads the specified file to Amazon Glacier for archival storage in the specified vault in the specified user's account. For small archives, this method uploads the archive directly to Glacier. For larger archives, this method uses Glacier's multipart upload API to split the upload into multiple parts for better error recovery if any errors are encountered while streaming the data to Amazon Glacier.


This is an asynchronous operation using the standard naming convention for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the operation is implemented as a pair of methods using the standard naming convention of BeginUpload and EndUpload.
