AWS Snowball Edge devices are now available in the AWS Middle East (UAE) Region.

AWS Snowball, a member of the AWS Snow Family, is an edge computing, data migration, and edge storage device that comes in two configurations - Snowball Edge Storage Optimized and Snowball Edge Compute Optimized. The Snowball Edge Storage Optimized device provides 80 TB of Amazon S3 compatible object storage and is designed for local storage and large-scale data transfer. You can use these devices for data collection, machine learning and processing, and storage in environments with intermittent connectivity (like manufacturing, industrial, and transportation) or in extremely remote locations (like military or maritime operations) before shipping the devices back to AWS.

AWS Snowball Edge Storage Optimized is offered with on-demand pricing option, which includes 10 days of device use and a per-day fee for each additional day you use the device before sending it back to AWS. AWS Snowball Edge Compute Optimized is available in Monthly and 1-Year Commit pricing options. For complete pricing details, visit the AWS Snowball pricing page.
