Large data migration with Amazon Snow Family devices

Large data migration from on-premises locations requires careful planning, orchestration, and execution to ensure that your data is successfully migrated to Amazon.

We recommend that you have a data migration strategy in place before starting your migration to avoid the potential for missed deadlines, exceeding budgets and migration failures. Amazon Snow services helps you to place, order, and track your large data migration projects via the Snow Family Large Data Migration Manager (LDMM) feature in the Amazon Snow Family Management Console.

The topics, Planning your large transfer and Calibrating a large transfer describe a manual data migration process. You can streamline the manual steps using the Snow Family LDMM migration plan.
