Dear NDSA members,

I wanted to pass along our announcement, the addition of Amazon Glacier to our DuraCloud offering, since many of you have asked about this option.  We are currently looking for early adopters interested in using Glacier to document and share with the community use cases, best practices and sustainable pricing models.  Amazon has asked us to provide use cases in order to come up with an alternative pricing model for our community.  If you have an interest in working with us in coming up with the use cases ( whether you want to use Glacier locally or through DuraCloud) please email me.
