With AWS Snowcone, you pay only for the use of the device and for data transfer out of AWS. Data transferred offline into AWS with Snowcone does not incur any transfer fees. For online data transfer pricing with AWS DataSync, please refer to the DataSync pricing page. Standard pricing applies once data is stored in the AWS Cloud.
For AWS Snowcone, you pay a service fee per job, which includes five days usage on-site, and for any extra days you have the device on-site. For high-volume deployments, contact your AWS sales team.
Service Fee per Job
This is a one-time setup fee per job ordered through the console, and it includes five days of onsite usage. Shipping days are not counted toward the five days, including the day the device is received and the day it is shipped back to AWS. Snowcone pricing is listed below and is the same for all Regions.
Per Day Fee for Each Job
The first five days of onsite usage is included in the service fee. If the device is kept for more than five days, you incur a fee for each day you keep the device. The per day fee is listed below by Region.
Shipping charges are calculated based on standard carrier rates for the shipping location and shipping option you choose (e.g. 2-day, overnight). The default shipping option is 2-day.
AWS Service Charges
Standard AWS service charges apply for usage incurred from importing or exporting data to or from your Amazon S3 buckets, such as Amazon S3 PUT requests or AWS KMS request charges (if KMS encryption is enabled on your Amazon S3 bucket).
If a Snowcone device is lost or irreparably damaged while it is in your possession – after delivery and before the carrier accepts the device for return delivery – you will be charged loss fees as noted below. Loss fees also apply if you do not provide the device to the carrier for return to us at our request.
Snowcone Lost Device Fee is $2,000.
