AWS OpsHub is a graphical user interface you can use to manage your AWS Snowball devices, enabling you to rapidly deploy edge computing workloads and simplify data migration to the cloud. With just a few clicks in AWS OpsHub, you have the full functionality of the Snowball devices at your fingertips; you can unlock and configure devices, drag-and-drop data to devices, launch applications, and monitor device metrics.  

Previously, customers operated Snowball devices by either entering commands into a command line interface or by using REST APIs. Now with AWS OpsHub, you have an easier way to deploy and manage even large fleets of Snowball devices, all while operating without an internet connection.

AWS OpsHub is an application that you can download and install on any Windows or Mac, such as a laptop. Once you have installed AWS OpsHub and have your Snowball devices onsite, open AWS OpsHub and unlock the device. You will then be presented with a dashboard showing your device and its system metrics. Then, you are just a few clicks away from simply deploying your edge applications or migrating your data to the devices.

AWS OpsHub supports the Snowball Edge Storage Optimized and Snowball Edge Compute Optimized devices. It is available globally where AWS Snowball is available, and at no extra charge. To get started and learn more, please refer to the following resources:
