Snowball vs Snowmobile

0 votes
Both Snowball and Snowmobile can be used to transfer the data offline without making the use of the public internet. This makes it faster and secure. Does AWS have recommendations on when to use what?

A single Snowball can store up to 80 TB of data out of which only 72 TB is of usable space. AWS recommends using a Snowball when the data to be transferred is less than 10 PB or else to use a Snowmobile.

So, the size of the data which has to be moved in and out of the cloud determines to use AWS Snowball or Snowmobile.
