Understanding Amazon S3 Glacier retrieval tiers

Standard retrieval

Standard retrieval provides access to any of your archives within several hours. Standard retrieval usually takes between 3 and 5 hours to complete.

Bulk retrieval

Bulk retrieval is Amazon S3 Glacier's lowest-cost retrieval type. You can retrieve large amounts of data inexpensively. Bulk retrieval usually completes within 5 and 12 hours.
