[Announcement] AWS Snowball Edge Compute Optimized delivers double the compute capacity and is now fully SSD NVMe storage
Posted On: Oct 18, 2022 AWS announced an enhanced Snowball Edge Compute Optimized with expanded compute, memory and storage options. The AWS Snowball Edge Compute Optimized device doubled the compute capacity up to 104 vCPUs, doubled the memory capacity up to 416GB RAM, and is now fully SSD with 28TB NVMe storage. AWS Snowball Edge Compute Optimized is a secure, rugged device that brings AWS computing and storage capabilities, such as Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, Amazon S3, AWS IoT Greengrass, AWS Lambda functions, and AWS IAM to your rugged edge environments. AWS Snowball Edge is available in two device types. Snowball Edge Compute Optimized with more computing capabilities, suited for higher performance workloads, and Snowball Edge Storage Optimized with more storage, which is suited for large-scale data migrations and capacity-oriented workloads. You can use Snowball Edge devices in environments with intermittent connectivity (like manufacturing, industrial, and transportation) or in extremely remote locations (like military or maritime operations). Snowball Edge Compute Optimized capabilities now include double the available compute to 104 vCPUs and 416GB RAM with an all SSD (28TB NVMe) storage architecture for Amazon S3 compatible object storage or EBS-compatible block volumes. The updated Snowball Edge Compute Optimized device is ideal when you need dense compute resources to run complex workloads such as AI/ML inference, video analytics, or to deploy private 5G wireless networks at the rugged, mobile edge, and in high-vibration environments on mobile platforms such as trucks, aircraft or ships. The updated AWS Snowball Edge Compute Optimized is available now in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), and AWS GovCloud (US). You can get started by ordering a Snowball Edge device on the AWS Snow Family console and can learn more about Snowball in the AWS Snowball Edge documentation.
