AWS Snowmobile

Migrate or transport exabyte-scale datasets into and out of AWS

Quickly and securely transfer up to 100 petabytes of data in as little as a few weeks.

Protect your data in a tamper-resistant, water-resistant, and temperature-controlled container with limited physical access.

Quickly retrieve data from the cloud whenever you need it.

How it works

AWS Snowmobile moves extremely large amounts of data to AWS. Transfer up to 100 PB per Snowmobile, a 45-foot-long ruggedized shipping container pulled by a semi-trailer truck.
