Storage Cloud Archive Service

Last June, during the Oracle Cloud Platform Launch event, Thomas Kurian introduced Oracle Storage Cloud Archive Service, the lowest cost solution for long term data retention.

Customers can use Archive containers to store data that won't be accessed for a while or that will be accessed infrequently.

An Archive container is a container for which the X-Storage-Class metadata field is set to Archive.
curl -v -X PUT
-H 'X-Auth-Token: token'
-H 'X-Storage-Class: Archive'

If you use the latest version of Cloudberry Explorer for Openstack (1.5.025), you can easily create Archive containers.
