Azure Data Box family

Move stored or in-flight data to Azure quickly and cost-effectively – Data Box offline devices easily move data to Azure when busy networks aren't available. Data Box online appliances transfer data to and from Azure over the network.

Why Azure Data Box family?

Data is being generated at record levels, and moving stored or in-flight data to the cloud can be challenging. Azure Data Box products provide both offline and online solutions for moving your data to the cloud.

Data Box, Data Box Disk Preview and Data Box Heavy Preview devices help you transfer large amounts of data to Azure when the network isn't an option. These offline data transfer devices are shipped between your organisation and the Azure data centre. They use AES encryption to help protect your data in transit, and they undergo a thorough post-upload sanitisation process to delete your data from the device.

Data Box Edge Preview and Data Box Gateway Preview are online data transfer products that act as network storage gateways to manage data between your website and Azure. Data Box Edge, an on-premises network device, transfers data to and from Azure and uses artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled edge compute to process data. Data Box Gateway is a virtual appliance with storage gateway capabilities.
