We present slides explaining a technique for lowering AWS storage costs by using AWS deep archive for direct science use. The Technique also allows a storage administrator to cap data storage and movement fees, and to cleanly separate storage and movement fees from AWS costs of investigators analyzing the data. These slides were presented at the summer 2020 ESIP (Earth Science Information Partners) meeting.
