We are pleased to announce the 80 TB Snowball appliance, a larger capacity Snowball that enables more data to be securely moved in or out of AWS with fewer jobs. Since first launching Snowball at Re:Invent 2015, customers have successfully migrated petabytes of data to AWS using the 50TB Snowball and avoided challenges typically associated with large-scale data transfers such as high network costs, long transfer times, and security concerns. With the new 80 TB Snowball, customers can move 60% more data with a single job, thereby requiring fewer jobs to move large amounts of data, reducing per-job fees and shipping costs, and enabling faster migration of data. 

The 80 TB Snowball employs the same 256-bit encryption and industry-standard Trusted Platform Module (TPM) designed to ensure both security and full chain-of-custody for your data. It includes the same 10GBaseT network connection (both RJ45 as well as SFP+ with either a fiber or copper interface) enabling you to fill a device in as little as one day. Multiple simultaneous Snowball jobs can be used to migrate hundreds of terabytes or even petabytes of data to AWS in less than a week.

The 50 TB Snowball costs $200 per job, plus shipping, and is now available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), and AWS GovCloud (US) regions.

The new 80 TB Snowball costs $250 per job, plus shipping, and is now available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), AWS GovCloud (US), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and EU (Ireland) regions, with the rest of the world expected by the end of 2016.
