Amazon Web Services Simplifies Large Data Transfers

Amazon has released a new web service interface that enables easy management of large data transfers and migrations. The new Amazon Web Services (AWS) Import/Export accelerates moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport. The company claims that for large data sets, AWS Import/Export is often significantly faster than Internet transfer and more cost effective than upgrading network connectivity.
