Hi Mikko,

thanks for the link. After reading the article, I think that Glacier is a trap 
only if you intend to restore more than 5% of the archive.
For me, the most likely scenario is that I will restore the latest version of 
the backup, which should work without using Glacier (thanks to the options in 
ede's reply).
In the unlikely case that I need to restore an older backup, I will find the 
backup without accessing Glacier (using the manifest and signature files), and 
I only need to download the specific archive files from Glacier. If I have 20 
full backups, I can restore one full backup without touching the 5% limit.

So it seems Glacier is a good option to me, or am I missing something?

Best regards
