AWS Snowball Edge is a 100TB data transfer device with on-board storage and compute. You can use Snowball Edge to move large amounts of data into and out of AWS, as a temporary storage tier for large local data sets, or to support independent local workloads in remote locations. 

Snowball Edge connects to your existing applications and infrastructure using standard storage interfaces, streamlining the data transfer process and minimizing setup and integration. Snowball Edge can cluster together to form a local storage tier and process your data on-premises, helping ensure your applications continue to run even when they are not able to access the cloud.  

You can run AWS Lambda code on Snowball Edge to perform tasks such as analyze sensor data streams, transcode multimedia content or compress images in real-time. Data is collected, stored, and processed using the Snowball Edge independent from any other storage or compute resource. Snowball Edge is designed to keep data secure while on site or in transit to AWS, making it appropriate for even the most sensitive data.
