It’s the process of moving data and applications from an organization’s existing infrastructure to the cloud or to move them from one cloud service to the next.
AWS data transfer tools, services According to Ed Laczynski (CEO at Zype video CMS creator), there are four things you should pay special attention to.
Ed says that the first consideration should be the size of the data being transferred. “How much data? How many files? The second is the format. How is it stored? Many small files in many folders. Many large files? Is it compressed
“Third” is the source location and the network environment at this location. Is the AWS Region located near the location? Is the network bandwidth at the source end sufficient and consistent? Speed of light is important!
“Fourth, are the privacy-security requirements for the data. Is it possible to move the data? Are your employees allowed to move the data Are there any special arrangements that need to be made in order to encrypt data before the move? How will it be protected in the cloud?

Online vs. offline data transferAWS Cloud is an online platform that promises its customers to free them from the shackles and limitations of hardware and in-house server servers. You might be surprised to learn that AWS also offers analog methods of transferring data.
Depending on how large your data is and how fast you need it to be transferred, you have two options: either transferring your data over the internet or transferring it to a physical storage device that AWS then takes away.
Online data migration
You can use an online data transfer method to set up a network connection to the AWS Virtual Private Cloud and then transfer your data to AWS using an internet connection.
Network data transfers can be used to lift and shift large datasets once and integrate existing process flows such as backup and recovery.
AWS offers many methods to link your VPC to a network. These options can be tailored to your needs depending on how much data you have, where it is located, and how fast it’s being moved.
Offline data migration
You can choose to migrate the “old-fashioned way” if you have too many data files to spend weeks, months or even years watching them stream into AWS.
AWS offers a range of services that allow users to drop their data onto a secure device, and then ship it back to AWS to be transferred onto its could platform.
The amount of data you need to ship will determine which service you need. AWS Snowball is a rugged, endto-end encrypted service
