How to Connect to AWS Snowball and Copy Data

1. Order the AWS Snowball from your AWS Account and have it shipped to you.


Note: Good YouTube Video by AWS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxIiEjmVFu0

2. Download the AWS Snowball Client

3. Download the Manifest File

Note: (Security Alert!) Protect the location of the file. King of the Kingdom access if someone snatches it or accesses it unauthorized for the workload/data.



4. Make sure the manifest file is in a path you can access easily. If it's on your workstation, it may be a delay. Use a jump server.
