Interestingly Amazon have just introduced the ability for a user to
load their cloud systems with customer provided data in the form of an
external hard drive.


When to Use AWS Import/Export

If you have large amounts of data to load and an Internet connection
with limited bandwidth, the time required to prepare and ship a
portable storage device to AWS can be a small percentage of the time
it would take to transfer your data over the internet. If loading your
data over the Internet would take a week or more, you should consider
using AWS Import/Export.
