Azure Data Box Preview
An appliance designed to simplify data movement to Azure.
- Secure & Ruggedized appliance
- Fast and easy to move terabytes to petabytes of data
- Order it, fill it up and return it - all tracked in the Azure Portal
Use the Azure Data Box service when you want to transfer large amounts of data to Azure but are limited by time, network availability or costs.
Transferring terabytes of data to the cloud is hard. The Azure Data Box provides a secure, tamper-resistant method for quick and simple transfer of your data to Azure. You can order the Data Box through the Azure portal. Easily connect it to your existing network, then load your data onto the Data Box using standard NAS protocols (SMB/CIFS). Your data is automatically protected using 256-AES encryption. The Data Box is returned to the Azure Data Center to be uploaded to Azure, then the device is securely erased.
Secure End to End
The Data Box is securely encrypted using a customer provided password during the order process and using 256 bit-AES encryption during data loading.
Easy to Use
The Data Box can plug directly into your local network and you can use its built-in administration capabilities to specify an IP address via direct assignment or via DHCP.
The Data Box is supported and endorsed by a global array of partners with deep experience helping customers manage large amounts of data.
