Uploading an Archive to S3 Glacier

JavaScript code example that applies to Node.js execution

This Node.js code example shows:

  • How to upload an archive to Amazon S3 Glacier using the uploadArchive method of the S3 Glacier service object.

The following example uploads a single Buffer object as an entire archive using the uploadArchive method of the S3 Glacier service object.

The example assumes you've already created a vault named YOUR_VAULT_NAME. The SDK automatically computes the tree hash checksum for the data uploaded, though you can override it by passing your own checksum parameter:

Prerequisite Tasks

To set up and run this example, you must first complete these tasks:

Upload the Archive

// Load the SDK for JavaScript var AWS = require('aws-sdk'); // Set the region AWS.config.update({region: 'REGION'}); // Create a new service object and buffer var glacier = new AWS.Glacier({apiVersion: '2012-06-01'}); buffer = Buffer.alloc(2.5 * 1024 * 1024); // 2.5MB buffer var params = {vaultName: 'YOUR_VAULT_NAME', body: buffer}; // Call Glacier to upload the archive. glacier.uploadArchive(params, function(err, data) { if (err) { console.log("Error uploading archive!", err); } else { console.log("Archive ID", data.archiveId); } });
