AWS Snowcone: A Rugged, Portable Edge Computing Device


Amazon Web Services Inc. added a new product to its family of data migration devices, introducing a secure edge computing and data transfer device it calls AWS Snowcone.


The small, ultra portable and rugged 4.5-pound device offers up to 8 terabytes of usable storage and is targeted at the rising number of edge computing workloads, where space, power and cooling features are limited.


The device measures just nine by six by three inches, and can easily fit into a backpack or a standard mailbox. It’s also light enough that it can be carried by most drones.


AWS Snowcone runs on two central processing units, has 4 gigabytes of memory for compute operations and a USB-C connection, plus an optional battery unit.
