Amazon Elasticsearch Service announces a new lower cost storage tier

Amazon Elasticsearch Service now supports cold storage, a fully-managed storage tier that makes it easy for customers to securely store and analyze their infrequently accessed data on-demand, at a lower cost than other storage tiers. You pay for compute only when you need it. Cold storage allows you to retain any amount of data in your Amazon Elasticsearch Service domain while reducing cost per GB to near Amazon S3 storage prices.
