    A technology company has a large enterprise resource planning (ERP) system with 70 TB of data hosted in their data center, which they want to migrate to AWS. The migration activities should not exceed 7 days to avoid any downtime as the on-premises data storage being used by the ERP system is almost full. Since the data to be migrated is 79 TB, the company is choosing between Snowball and Snowball Edge as their preferred service to transfer their data. The service should also provide a durable local storage to ensure data durability.

    Which of the following are the use cases where Snowball Edge is more suitable than the standard Snowball service?

    <div>In the answer examiner refer “snowball” and “snowball edge”. What did the question set person refer it as just “snowball”, when you say just “snowball” you are mentioning the whole snow ball family , it can be snow cone, snow edge or snow mobile

    Please clarify

    Hello Joseph,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The choices for this question where taken from the AWS documentation service.

    The table shows the difference between the use cases for Snowball and Snowball Edge.

    Hope this helps.
