The AWS Snowball offers two software tools that can help you access and manage your device.
Snowball Client – A terminal application that you can use to unlock Snowball devices and to transfer data onto a standard Snowball.
We recommend that you use 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 Snowball and your Mac or Linux workstations.
S3 SDK Adapter for Snowball – A programmatic tool that you can use to transfer data between your on-premises data center and a standard Snowball. You can use the S3 Adapter with existing Amazon S3 interfaces like the AWS SDKs, the AWS CLI, or your own custom Amazon S3 REST client.
