Azure Data Box heavy edition now available for petabyte-sized data transfers
Updated: February 07, 2020
The Azure Data Box heavy edition is a secure, ruggedized appliance shipped to customers to facilitate petabyte-sized offline data transfers to Azure Storage.
Data Box makes data migration to Azure fast and simple by providing a secure, tamper-resistant method for quick transfer of your data. You can order the Data Box through the Azure portal. Easily connect it to your existing network, then load your data onto Data Box using standard NAS protocols (SMB/CIFS). Your data is automatically protected using 256-AES encryption. Data Box is returned to the Azure Data Center to be uploaded to Azure, then the device is securely erased.
