AWS expands Snowball service to Asia Pacific (Singapore) region.
AWS Snowball is a data transport solution that accelerates moving terabytes to petabytes of data into and out of AWS using storage appliances designed to be secure for physical transport. Using Snowball helps to eliminate challenges that can be encountered with large-scale data transfers including high network costs, long transfer times, and security concerns. Beyond large-scale data transfers, AWS Snowball also supports importing data from a Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).
