Data Box options for online and offline data transfer

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

Offline Data Transfer - Data Box, Data Box Disk PREVIEW and Data Box Heavy PREVIEW 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.

Online Data Transfer - Data Box Edge PREVIEW and Data Box Gateway PREVIEW are online data transfer products. Data Box Edge is an on-premises network appliance that can move data into and out of Azure and has the ability to add AI-enabled edge compute to process data during upload. Data Box Gateway is a virtual appliance for moving data in and out of Azure.
