- It claims to have much lower latency, a few seconds instead of a few hours.
- It has the same (synchronous) API as Google's more expensive storage, where Glacier has a different (asynchronous) API than S3.
- Its pricing for getting data out lacks Glacier's 5% free tier, but otherwise is much simpler than Glacier's.
I believe I know how Google has built their nearline technology, I wrote about it two years ago.
