    So yes, you should be able to archive everything, keep it on site and then migrate them to the cloud the older they get. It would work similar to how you can migrate to tape or secondary storage, but in this case, it would be cloud storage

    And here for Amazon S3 Storage

    Your best bet really is to talk to sales and ask for a possible Demo and moving forward with a small pilot, i'm not sure whether you will have to talk to Amazon or your chosen provider regarding a small test run using cloud space or not though
