Is it possible to write directly to a Glacier Vault rather than an S3 bucket?
Glacier Vault is a completely different API to communicate directly with Glacier Vault. CatDV’s S3 plugin supports all the Glacier features that are incorporated into S3 including expedited restore (to S3 then to the endpoint). If customers wish to use Glacier Vault, which is essentially a different product, it needs a completely new and different plugin to be written. Currently, a Glacier Vault plugin is not on the roadmap as S3 and the S3 APIs access to Glacier gives a lot of flexibility for workflows and cost management.
