Learn how to identify cases in which network bandwidth constraints may make data transfer infeasible, and to articulate their options for transferring data via AWS's shipped hard drive service, Snowball.
- [Instructor] When it comes to transferring data…to the cloud, especially in very large quantities,…latency and bandwidth restrictions…are constant concerns.…There are many points at which our throughput…might be limited by the speed of our connection…or bottlenecked by low bandwidth network ops.…We can alleviate this somewhat by using a technology…like AWS direct connect, but at a certain size…of data load the bandwidth of the internet…just isn't going to cut it.…We'd almost be better off loading our data…into a truck and driving it to AWS.…In fact, this is true, given sufficient data quantity…and demanding enough time constraints,…physically moving hard drives of data…is more efficient than moving that same data…over the internet.…
Back in 1981 American Dutch computer scientist…Andrew Tanenbaum put it thusly;…never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon…full of tapes hurtling down the highway.…For an interesting dive into the implications…of this statement, take a look at XKCD author…Randall Munroe's what if article on FedEx bandwidth.…
Join AWS architect Brandon Rich and learn how to configure object storage solutions and lifecycle management in Simple Storage Service (S3), a web service offered by AWS, and migrate, back up, and replicate relational data in RDS. Find out how to leverage flexible network storage with Elastic File System (EFS), and use the new AWS Glue service to move and transform data. Plus, learn how Snowball can help you transfer truckloads of data in and out of the cloud.
