Limitations on Transferring On-Premises Data with a Snowball Edge Device

The following limitations exist for transferring data to or from an Amazon Snowball Edge device on-premises:

  • Files must be in a static state while being written. Files that are modified while being transferred are not imported into Amazon S3.

  • Jumbo frames are not supported—that is, Ethernet frames with more than 1500 bytes of payload.

  • When selecting what data to export, keep in mind that objects with trailing slashes in their names (/ or \) are not transferred. Before exporting any objects with trailing slashes, update their names to remove the slash.

  • When using multipart data transfer, the maximum part size is 512 megabytes (MB).
