Creating a large data migration plan

The Amazon Snow Family large data migration plan feature enables you to plan, track, monitor, and manage large data migrations from 500 TB to multiple petabytes using multiple Snow Family service products.

Use the large data migration plan feature to collect information about data migration goals, such as the size of the data to move to Amazon and the number of Snow Family devices needed to migrate the data simultaneously. Use the plan to create a projected schedule for your data migration project and the recommended job ordering schedule to meet your goals.


Currently, the data migration plan is available for import jobs larger than 500 TB.
