Datasync Transfer cost and time.


I want to transfer 200TB data from a bucket in Account A to another bucket in Account B using Datasync. Both the accounts are in the same region. How much time will it take to complete the transfer and how much **cost **will I incur in the transfer?

Greetings, AWS DataSync's data transfer speed and cost are dependent on several factors, including the size of the data set, network conditions, file sizes, and whether the data is being transferred within the same AWS region or across different regions.

Let's consider the theoretical maximum speed for now:

1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) is equivalent to 0.125 GBps (Gigabytes per second) because 1 byte = 8 bits. So, 10 Gbps = 1.25 GBps.

200TB (Terabytes) = 200,000 GB (Gigabytes)

If you were able to continuously transfer data at 1.25 GBps, the total time to transfer 200TB would be:

200,000 GB / 1.25 GBps = 160,000 seconds =44.44 hours

This is under absolutely ideal conditions, and actual transfer times could be significantly higher.

The onetime cost is about 2560 USD

Please let me know if I answered your question Zjon

It will cost you around 2,560.00 USD. More details here.

For the time it depends on the bandwidth of your connection. Check your transfer rate per hour or sec and divide it with this number to give you the approximate time. Use this on top left
