Free AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate SAA-C03 Practice Question

Your application will store large data files that are frequently accessed for the first 30 days, after which they are rarely accessed. Which storage option aligns most closely with these access patterns to balance performance and cost?

  • Use Amazon S3 to store data, setting a lifecycle policy to transition to S3 Standard-Infrequent Access (S3 Standard-IA) after 30 days.

  • Use Amazon EBS Cold HDD (sc1) volumes for data storage, as they are designed for less frequently accessed workloads.

  • Use Amazon EFS with the Infrequent Access storage class for all the files since they will become infrequently accessed.

  • Store the data on Amazon Glacier, as it is the most cost-effective option for rarely accessed data.
