Snowball Edge Client
The Snowball Edge Client is a terminal application for Snow Family devices that you can use to unlock, set up, and administer devices.
We recommend using the latest Linux or Mac clients which support the Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI) extension to the x86 instruction set architecture. This improves speeds for encrypting or decrypting data during transfers between the Snow Family devices and your Mac or Linux workstations.
