"Interesting data movement solution for edge computing!"

What do you like best?

As edge computing gains prominence, database solutions have been ever increasingly vital.

Transport speed of the data is incredibly fast.

The most eye-catching feature of Snowball being the ability to form temporary installation by clustering and racking up the data collection and processing devices.

What do you dislike?

It is a data migration solution agreed and one of the only ones integrated with edge computing. it is a little bit costly for my liking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scalability is not an issue anymore and it is extremely easy to use.

What On-Premise Data Integration solution do you use?

"Snowball"

What do you like best?

We are still copying our data which I must say is at extremely high speeds, and the low cost associated with the service is an added advantage because the bandwidth costs of uploading all this data to the cloud are extremely expensive

What do you dislike?

The price is a bit steep but manageable. If the price were to be lowered abit it would be very nice especially in asia specific region

"Quickest way to get Big Data to the cloud"

What do you like best?

The fast transfer of our large data pools to the cloud. When migrating on-prem DB's this is a life saver

What do you dislike?

If i had to pick anything it would be the fact that since its an external device it does have to be shipped back and forth for the data to be moved via the mail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you dont want to rely on your connection to your cloud to move large amounts of data this is the way to go!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has solved the problem of us moving hundreds of TB of Database data to the cloud. Its a much faster route then relying on our VPC connection from on prem to our cloud.
