Managing AWS services on your device - AWS Snowball Edge Developer Guide

Managing AWS services on your device

With AWS OpsHub, you can use and manage AWS services on your Snow Family devices. Currently, AWS OpsHub supports the following resources:

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances – Use Amazon EC2-compatible instances to run software installed on a virtual server without sending it to the AWS Cloud for processing.

  • Network File System (NFS) – Use file shares to move data to your device. You can ship the device to AWS to transfer your data to the AWS Cloud, or use DataSync to transfer to other AWS Cloud locations.

  • Amazon S3 compatible storage on Snow Family devices – Delivers secure object storage with increased resiliency, scale, and an expanded Amazon S3 API feature-set to rugged, mobile edge, and disconnected environments. Using Amazon S3 compatible storage on Snow Family devices, you can store data and run highly available applications on Snow Family device for edge computing.
