Amazon using FedEx to upload large amounts of data to S3 cloud

June 11th, 2010 at 12:19 PM

If you have terabytes of data you desperately need to upload to Amazon’s cloud storage service — and don’t feel like waiting the 2 months for the transfer to complete — you now have another option. FedEx. Amazon is allowing customers to FedEx mass storage devices to its Seattle, Virginia, or Dublin locations for direct, internal upload. Amazon will charge $80 per physical storage device sent, plus $2.49 for each hour it takes for the data to upload; you can check out the online calculator to see exactly how much FedEx’ing Amazon will cost you. Here’s what Amazon had to say about the new service:

“AWS Import/Export accelerates moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport. AWS transfers your data directly onto and off of storage devices using Amazon’s high-speed internal network and bypassing the Internet. For significant data sets, AWS Import/Export is often faster than Internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading your connectivity.”

As always, “AWS is not responsible for damages associated with loss or inadvertent disclosure of data; or the loss, damage, or destruction of the physical hardware. You should always retain a back-up copy of your data.”
