Upload to Amazon Glacier using PowerShell

CloudBerry Explorer PowerShell snippets for Amazon Glacier  

As always we are adding features to make it easier for our customers to use the functionality to offer the most compelling Amazon S3 , CloudFront , IAM and Glacier client on Windows platform.
CloudBerry S3 Explorer has supported Glacier for quite some time now.  We introduced the Glacier support in September, followed by supporting encryption and compression and finally Amazon S3 to Glacier archiving.
Since the very first release CloudBerry Explorer featured PowerShell extension to automate Amazon S3 and CloudFront tasks. The latest release of CloudBerry Explorer comes with a PowerShell extension that helps users automate Glacier tasks and integrate it with other PowerShell routines. The extension includes commands such as create, delete vaults, copy and move data to Glacier, create Inventory and Retrieval jobs and create Lifecycle policies. 
Here is a few examples of PowerShell command.
