amazon AWS physical data ingest service launches

21 May 2009 amazon AWS physical data ingest service launches

{also blogged this on}
Amazon just announced a new storage feature that I’ve been anxiously awaiting for some time now.

Simply put, Amazon is now willing to accept delivery of eSATA and USB disks for large-scale data ingestion into the S3 storage cloud service. This is far faster than internet based methods, particularly if you are dealing with daily terabyte-scale data that you’d like to park in some sort of external utility service.

I think this may be a big deal for life science and can forsee quite a bit of scientific data making “1-way” trips into the cloud for long term storage and even secondary processing via cloud server instances. We’ll see.
