    (SAA C02 – Practice Test 5, Section: CSAA – Design Cost-Optimized Architectures) A company has 10 TB of infrequently accessed financial data files that would need to be stored in AWS. These data would be accessed infrequently during specific weeks when they are retrieved for auditing purposes. The retrieval time is not strict as long as it does not exceed 24 hours.

    Which of the following would be a secure, durable, and cost-effective solution for this scenario?

    One of the answers are: ” Upload the data to S3 and set a lifecycle policy to transition data to Glacier after 0 days.”

    Lifecycle policies don’t kick in until minimum storage duration has reached – in this case, for S3 standard, it is 30 days. Just a feedback, this answer might be wrong.

    Hi metalfox3d,

    S3 lifecycle is a feature that automatically transition or moves your data from one storage class to another depending on the set of rules you define to a group of objects. The requirement from the scenario above mentioned that the required retrieval period should not exceed more than a day, hence in this case, you need to create a lifecycle policy to transition the data to Glacier after 0 days. The minimum days for transition only applies to S3 Standard/S3 Standard-IA to S3 Standard-IA or S3 One Zone-IA.

    Best Regards,
