I thought about dumping my entire lightroom catalog into jpegmini exported jpg to amazon. Every single image of 135k images. At least I would have a jpg backup ya know. I mean in the end i'm not trying to preserve raw forever. When I die most likely the images will die with me.... nobody will ever look at them.
this is why I like to print.
I just export 2000 pixels on the longest side, Q8. The images look good and are pretty small.

I can up load my raws to amazon and where a years folder is not going to change it does not need to be synced to monitor changes. It is though down to your internet speed, before we had a decent connection it was going to take 2 years to do one year for about 300 gig. I don't know if Amazon has as good redundancy on their data banks though, its a last line of defence for me as I also have drives at my dads house just let them spin up every few months and swap the current on every few weeks. I see off site drives and on line as a line of defence if the house burns down and importantly data is moved on to newer drives quite frequently as well as staying on the older ones as the main risk is drive failure. Jpeg as a speedy method of moving files to upload is a good idea though, I would also advocate having enough memory cards or a large enough SSD when travelling as spinning drives are more susceptible to shock damage, still back up though.
Depends which Amazon service you use. It's most likely Amazon S3 providing the storage, which has 99.999999999% durability. From their S3 FAQ
Q: How are Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier designed to achieve 99.999999999% durability?
A: Amazon S3 Standard, S3 Standard-IA, and Amazon Glacier storage classes redundantly store your objects on multiple devices across a minimum of three Availability Zones (AZs) in an Amazon S3 Region before returning SUCCESS. The S3 One Zone-IA storage class stores data redundantly across mutliple devices within a single AZ. These services are designed to sustain concurrent device failures by quickly detecting and repairing any lost redundancy, and they also regularly verify the integrity of your data using checksums.
