The presentation will provide an overview of how Wazee Digital is using AWS Snowball to migrate millions of files and over 4 petabytes of video and still images from a private data center into Amazon Web Services (AWS). Further, this presentation will touch on the key considerations, design, and approach; lessons learned throughout the process; and why Wazee Digital made the decision to go “all in” on AWS.

“Our use of AWS Snowball was predicated on moving very large video files in the most elegant and rapid way with security at top of mind,” says Loose. “Further, the use of AWS Snowball gives our company confidence that the data we are migrating will make it safely and securely to its destination. It’s a massive decision to make — how you will transfer data — and once again, we’re trusting AWS to help facilitate the process and ensure a successful migration. This project is a case study on how to migrate large data sets to a public cloud environment in the most efficient and repeatable way possible. We are looking forward to sharing our story at AWS re:Invent 2017.”
