FastGlacier is a small desktop client for Amazon Glacier, a cloud-based storage service that allows users to archive and back up their data.
The program’s purpose is to offer a quick and easy way for helping you upload your files to Amazon Glacier using full bandwidth, download data, as well as manage the vaults without having to open your web browser.
It sports an intuitive layout from where you can manage your accounts, create or delete vaults, upload or download files, apply filters, as well as configure the entire process in detail via the Options panel.
Managing your Amazon Glacier accounts
The program gives you the possibility to add a new account by providing details about the name, access key ID, and secret access key. Additionally, you may encrypt Access Keys by setting up a master password, add multiple accounts, as well as edit or delete the selected one.
Creating vaults and uploading files
FastGlacier allows you to create a new vault, delete the selected one, refresh the vault list with just one click, compare data with your local folder, find duplicate files, as well as check out the Properties panel for information about each vault, such as region name and code, retrieval price, and total vaults, files, and size.
When it comes to file management operations, it is important to mention that the tool offers support for drag-and-drop, so you can directly import data in the primary panel. You may upload files and folders, download the selected items, delete files, and create a new directory.
A smart feature bundled in this program enables you to apply filters in order to exclude or include files and folders from/to the uploading process. You may add a new filter by filename, size, attributes (e.g. hidden, archive, compressed, encrypted), creation or modification time. Plus, you are allowed to pick the comparison type: “Equals,” “Not equals,” “Greater than,” or “Less then.”
Plenty of configuration settings to play with
The tool lets you upload or download large files via multiple parallel threads (custom size in megabytes), specify how often FastGlacier should check the status of retrieval jobs, as well as enter the number of maximum number of retrying attempts and the delay before retrying.
There’s support for several connection parameters that help you activate secure transfers (HTTPS), set up proxy settings, enable bandwidth throttling and specify the maximum transfer rate per thread (the total bandwidth usage depends upon the number of concurrent threads), and increase the uploading/downloading speed by adjusting the buffer size.
Last but not least, you can enter the number of maximum concurrent uploads, downloads, and other tasks, log all messages or only warnings and errors, and export the log data to plain text file format.
An overall excellent app
All in all, FastGlacier proves to be a reliable desktop client for Amazon Glacier that comes bundled with a rich suite of configuration settings that is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
