Speakin' of Storage: AWS Snowball: Petabytes-a-Plenty

Recommended Posts

For you purveyors of Peta-Bytes, this may interest you, although it's clearly aimed at businesses that need to migrate insane amounts of data.

AWS Snowball (an Amazon Web Service).  It’s long been known that the fastest data transfer rate can be physical media delivered by courier. Amazon has taken this to an extreme, by announcing Snowmobile, an 18-wheeler semi-trailer truck that will carry 100 petabytes (100PB) in a shipping container from the customer premises for upload to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, with a crap-load of Snowballs in the back of the truck.
