IBM Cloud Object Storage Archive capability is the lowest-cost option for data that is rarely accessed and requires long-term retention.
Customers can manage their data lifecycle by applying an archive rule for objects written to their object storage buckets in any of the storage class tiers (Standard, Vault, Cold Vault, Flex). Customers can use the API directly, write their own apps, or use the IBM Cloud UI. The archive service is designed to maintain the same high security, availability, durability, and scalability as other IBM Cloud Object Storage class tiers.
