Creating a Cost-Optimized Solution Using Retention Policies and Bucket Policy Locks

You work for Acloud Medical Center as an engineer. They have a lot of customer files that will need to be stored and retained in compliance with the federal government's requirements. Your team wants you to use cloud storage and create a scenario where, when they upload their objects, the objects in the bucket cannot be deleted at all for the time specified. This is a huge project, and you need to make sure your setup actually works before any customer files are uploaded.
