What is your cold research data storage technical solution?

    Hi, I’m from Uni of Manchester. We need to implement a new COLD¬†research data storage solution? Would be very interested to know which solution other institutions have gone for? e.g. AWS, Azure, Dell Isilon? Currently we are using Isilon on campus – but looking for something cheaper. Have investigated AWS Glacier but that’s looking expensive with unpredictable costs.
