AWS Snow Family launches offline tape data migration capability

Today, AWS Snow Family launches a secure, offline tape data migration capability for AWS Snowball Edge, enabling you to migrate petabytes of data stored on physical tapes to AWS without changing your existing tape-based backup workflows. Using this capability, you can migrate tape data to AWS from environments, where you have network connectivity limitations, bandwidth constraints, and high network connection costs. Moving tape data to AWS helps you eliminate physical tape infrastructure expenses and gain online access to your tape data.
