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?
