Using AWS Services on AWS Snowcone - AWS Snowcone User Guide

Using AWS Services on AWS Snowcone

Following, you can find an overview of the AWS Snowcone device. AWS Snowcone is a physically rugged device protected by AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) that you can use for local storage and compute, or to transfer data between your on-premises servers and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

For information about unlocking an AWS Snowcone device, see Using the Snowball Edge Client.

When the device first arrives, inspect it for damage or obvious tampering.


If you notice anything that looks suspicious about the device, don't connect it to your internal network. Instead, contact AWS Support, and a new one will be shipped to you.

After your device arrives and is powered on, you're ready to use it.
