Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Getting Started

This section provides general instructions for creating and completing your first Amazon Snowcone job in the Amazon Snow Family Management Console. For an overview of the Amazon Snowcone device, see How Amazon Snowcone Works.

This getting started documentation assumes that you use the Amazon Snow Family Management Console to create your job, and you use the Snowball Edge client or the Amazon OpsHub for Snow Family application to unlock the Amazon Snowcone device. If you'd rather create your job programmatically with more options for the jobs you're creating, you can use the job management API. For more information, see Amazon Snowcone API Reference.

Before you can get started, you need to create an Amazon Web Services account and an administrator user in Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM). For more information, see Setting Up Amazon for Amazon Snowcone.
