"through it we can securely move Exabytes of data!"

What do you like best?

i have been using AWS Snowmobile for 2 years , the first thing about AWS snowmobile is that it's reliable and secure so you can transfer even 100 PB's of data using it very securely and easily , the most amazing thing about it that we can move different different categories of data like huge and compressed video libraries , image repositories etc. , and if you don't want to move data in small small chunks than you can also able to do complete data center migration easily , securely , fast by using AWS SNowmobile..

"Snowmobile moves data"

What do you like best?

Helps to move extremely large amounts of data over to AWS. They make it easy to transfer the data. Security is also the main focus with GPS tracking, alarm monitoring and video surveillance. This process allows for date transfer at a faster rate than past processes. The process is unique with the semi-container truck, but smooth.

What do you dislike?

The process is just that a process. Literally having a truck at your location is sometimes a logistic nightmare. Even with GPS tracking, security and escort the fear of someone taking that much data is concerning. An argument could be made to change your backup schedule and transfer smaller amounts of data more frequently instead of one large transfer

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickly migrating data from our on-prem to AWS. Items that were manually transferred to hard drives or other methods at slower paces we can now move quickly and with added security, even it if just feels that way with all the amenities. The transfer process of large amounts of data was easy with AWS. It is a fairly new process (2016) and is not perfect but it is a great solution

"Snowball used to move datacenter holdings"

What do you like best?

Synch with AWS. Support personnel easy to work with and responsive.

What do you dislike?

Has troubleshooting problem transferring the data. Data rate of transfer was slow,. Flar tire.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's worthwhile and will save time. There are some bugs to work out but on the whole the experience was positive. There is really no cost effective solution out there that can ease the burden of moving 10's of petabytes of data.
