Data Box for data transfer

Moving stored or in-flight data into the cloud is a challenge. Data Box devices provide solutions for both scenarios.

Data Box, Data Box Disk and Data Box Heavy are offline data transfer devices which are shipped between your datacenter and Azure. Data Boxes use standard NAS protocols (SMB/CIFs and NFS), use AES encryption to protect your data and perform a post-upload sanitisation process to ensure that all data is wiped clean from the device.

Data Box Gateway is an online data transfer product - a virtual appliance for moving data in and out of Azure.
