What is AWS Snowball?

AWS provides a very useful service called Snowball for transporting very large amounts of data at the scale of petabytes.
With Snowball, we can securely transfer data without any network cost.
It is a physical data transfer solution to store data in AWS cloud.
Once we create a Snowball job in AWS console, Amazon ships a physical storage device to our location. We can copy our data to this storage device and ship it back. Amazon services will take the Snowball device and transfer the data to Amazon S3.
