Supposing a company is trying to move its applications and data from on-premise to AWS. The company has over 600 TB of data that must be moved to Amazon S3. The company has concerns about time, costs and performance.
what is the fastest and most cost-effective way to perform the migration?
a- use multiple instances of the AWS Snowball client on multiple workstations with multiple AWS Snowball Edge appliances
b- use multiple instances of the Snowball client on multiple workstations with multiple Snowball appliances
c- use AWS storage gateway
d- perform a network based copy of the data from the on-premises servers to Amazon s3
I chose <i style=”font-weight: bold;”>’b’
– Performing a network based copy will take a lot of time (depending on the network bandwidth of the on-premise servers)
– Storage gateway is to have a hybrid storage (which is not the case in this scenario)
– ‘a’ is wrong, since we won’t be needing Snowball edge (since there is no compute requirement).
so the correct answer is ‘b’, use multiple instances of the Snowball client on multiple workstations with multiple Snowball appliances
Is it correct to follow this reasoning?
