Question: You are working for a large telecommunications company. They have a requirement to move 83 TB data warehouse to the cloud. It would take 2 months to transfer the data given their current bandwidth allocation.
Which is the most cost-effective service that would allow you to quickly upload their data into AWS?
a. Amazon Snowball Edge
b. Amazon Snowball
c. Amazon Direct Connect
d. Amazon S3 MultiPart Upload
Answer explanation says:
Remember that an 80 TB Snowball appliance and 100 TB Snowball Edge appliance only have 72 TB and 83 TB of usable capacity respectively. Hence, it would be costly if you use two Snowball devices compared to using just one AWS Snowball Edge device.
