AWS Import/Export vs AWS Snowball Edge: What are the differences?
AWS Import/Export: Transfer your data directly onto and off of storage devices using Amazon’s internal network and bypassing the Internet. Import/Export supports importing and exporting data into and out of Amazon S3 buckets. For significant data sets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than Internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading your connectivity; AWS Snowball Edge: Petabyte-scale data transport with on-board storage and compute. AWS Snowball Edge is a 100TB data transfer device with on-board storage and compute capabilities. You can use Snowball Edge to move large amounts of data into and out of AWS, as a temporary storage tier for large local datasets, or to support local workloads in remote or offline locations.
AWS Import/Export and AWS Snowball Edge can be primarily classified as "Data Transfer" tools.
