AWS Snowball Experience

So far the snowball has not been super impressive – Somehow they managed to engineer it to be much wider than 19″ so it will only fit into a rack standing up. Who at AWS thought this was a good idea?

Here it is “Installed” on the datacenter floor

After much fuss getting it installed in the rack, I was greeted with this very nice error message. “The appliance has timed out” I guess this one is going back to Amazon with no data.
