Keep in mind that while Amazon S3 is more expensive than any of the DIY storage projects, the S3 pricing already includes the cost of maintenance. Also, S3 keeps 3 copies of your data in different datacenters.

If pricing is a major concern, then Amazon RRS is cheaper, but only keeps copies of your data in 2 different datacenters. There is also Amazon Glacier that offers a much cheaper pricing but it is a bit more difficult to get your data out from Glacier.

BTW, I don't think Internet Archive should move to AWS.

Note: I don't work for Amazon, but we use AWS for our scalability testing:
