Snowball is a transport solution in AWS for petabyte-scale data. Snowball uses secure appliances that will be delivered and later collected back, to transfer large amounts of data into and out of the AWS cloud. Transferring data with Snowball is secure, and costs much less compared to high-speed Internet. Snowball uses multiple layers of security designed to protect your data including tamper-resistant enclosures, 256-bit encryption, and an industry-standard Trusted Platform Module (TPM) designed to ensure both security and full chain-of-custody of your data.
