Managing AWS Services on Your Device - AWS Snowball Edge Developer Guide

This guide is for the Snowball Edge. If you are looking for documentation for the Snowball, see the AWS Snowball User 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 instances to run software installed on a virtual server without sending it to the AWS Cloud for processing.

  • AWS DataSync—Transfer a large number of files between your on-premises storage and other AWS Cloud locations, such as file systems or Amazon S3.

  • 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 other AWS Cloud locations.
