    I am confused with data stored in S3 Glacier. I am getting conflicting information or I am not understanding.

    As per AWS docs

    To upload existing data to Amazon S3 Glacier (S3 Glacier), you might consider using one of the AWS Snowball device types to import data into Amazon S3, and then move it to the S3 Glacier storage class for archival using lifecycle rules.

    Use AWS Storage Gateway to backup the data directly to Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive.

    With the S3 PUT API, you can now upload objects directly to the S3 Glacier storage class without having to manage zero-day lifecycle policies.

    When you can create an object directly in Glacier with zero-day lifecycle policies.

    Why snowball edge data cannot be imported to glacier directly instead of uploading to S3 first ?

    Hello Sujatha,

    When you use a snowball device to transport data to AWS, the transfer is handled by AWS. Simply return the device to them, and they will import your data into S3 Standard. You can archive your data to Glacier after your data has been stored in Amazon S3.
