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, 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 sanitization process to ensure that all data is wiped clean from the device.

Online Data Transfer - Data Box Edge and Data Box Gateway 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.
