Creating a Vault in Amazon S3 Glacier

Creating a vault adds a vault to the set of vaults in your account. An Amazon Web Services account can create up to 1,000 vaults per Amazon Region. For a list of the Amazon Regions supported by Amazon S3 Glacier (S3 Glacier), see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon General Reference. For information on creating more vaults, go to the S3 Glacier product detail page.

When you create a vault, you must provide a vault name. The following are the vault naming requirements:

  • Names can be between 1 and 255 characters long.

  • Allowed characters are a–z, A–Z, 0–9, '_' (underscore), '-' (hyphen), and '.' (period).

Vault names must be unique within an account and the Amazon Region in which the vault is being created. That is, an account can create vaults with the same name in different Amazon Regions but not in the same Amazon Region.
