    10. QUESTION

    A company wants to transfer a large amount of data (50 TB) from its Amazon S3 bucket to its data center. Due to bandwidth constraints, downloading the data directly over the internet would take too long. The company needs to transfer the data as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Given Answer is: Use an AWS Snowball Edge Storage Optimized device to physically transfer the data to the company’s data center.

    However, I believe the question is asking on moving data from AWS to on-premises DC.
    (Snowball are for moving data to cloud and does it do cloud to on-premises?)

    Hi li-zhi,

    Thank you for reaching out with your question regarding transferring a large amount of data from Amazon S3 to an on-premises data center and your concerns about using AWS Snowball Edge Storage Optimized devices for such transfers.

    AWS Snowball is a specialized device that helps transfer large amounts of data into and out of the AWS cloud. This device, particularly the Snowball Edge Storage Optimized model, is useful when bandwidth constraints make direct internet transfers impractical. It can transfer data from AWS to an on-premises easily. When you initiate a data transfer job from AWS to your on-premises data center, AWS prepares a Snowball device with your encrypted data and ships it to your location. Once you receive the device, you can quickly transfer the data to your on-premises storage. This significantly reduces the time and bandwidth required compared to an internet-based transfer. After you complete the transfer, you can simply send the device back to AWS, where the data is erased according to strict security protocols.

    We hope this clarifies the capabilities of the AWS Snowball service for your data transfer needs. It’s an efficient solution for quickly and securely transferring large volumes of data from AWS S3 to your on-premises data center, bypassing the limitations of internet-based transfers. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, please feel free to ask.

    Regards,

    Hello Nikee,

    This is an area I need to know in depth too, as the questions are tricky, it confuses at times.

    Your explanation helped me to, technically, understand, “AWS Snowball Edge”

    What are the AWS related connections that could be used with AWS Snowball Edge? I ask this, if say I have 60TB of data to be transferred to AWS, and if I have a time limit of say, three weeks to four weeks, what might be the best way/solution?

    By the way, in the Section Based, which section covers VPC and Networking, including ELB?

    Kind Regards,

    Denzil

      Hello Denzil,

      Thank you for posting, and I’m glad to hear that the explanation on AWS Snowball Edge was helpful to you.

      AWS Snowball Edge devices facilitate data transfer and extend AWS’s computing capabilities to edge environments. These devices can be used along with various AWS services to enhance data transfer and processing tasks.

      First, AWS Snowball Edge seamlessly integrates with Amazon S3, allowing you to efficiently transfer data to and from S3 buckets. This is particularly useful for your case of transferring 60TB to AWS, as data can be directly moved to S3. Second, Snowball Edge supports AWS Lambda. It enables you to run Lambda functions to process or transform data as it’s being transferred, which is beneficial if you must preprocess data before storing it in AWS. For more information, you can read here.

      Given your timeframe and the volume of data, using one or more AWS Snowball Edge devices is the best option. Snowball Edge can handle petabytes of data, so 60TB is well within its capabilities. Transferring data directly via these devices is much faster than over the internet, especially if bandwidth is limited. If you’re pressed for time, please note that you can request multiple Snowball Edge devices to be delivered simultaneously. This way, you can parallelize the data loading process, significantly reducing the time required for data transfer.

      For your question about VPC and Networking, can you please send a snippet of the question? Thank you.

      If you have any specific question or need further details on using AWS Snowball Edge, please feel free to ask.

      Regards,

    Good day to you, Nikee,

    Appreciate your answer, in detail, where you explained how AWS Lambda too can be incorporated. It seems that AWS promote Lambda, their Serverless and AWS RDS, Amazon DynamoDB a lot. I seem many questions are based on these.

    As regards to VPC and Networking, I meant in the Section based AWS SAA-C03, practice questions, in which Section, VPC and Networking, including ELB are included? I see that whole loads of questions are related to ELB, CloudWatch, CloudTrail, SNS are being asked.

    DOJO states they update the questions, time to time. When would be the next update?

    Kind Regards,

    Denzil

      Hello Denzil,

      Apologies for that miss. You can use the Design Secure Architectures section to review VPC and Networking.

      Regarding the update, we assure you that all our courses are regularly updated to the exam that you are simulating.

      Regards,
