I’m currently looking at how to use AWS import export in practice for a new data product.

The saying goes something like – “Never underestimate the bandwidth of a Station Wagon full of tapes”. As it’s the first time we’ve used the service, we are going to be doing two simultaneous, identical export jobs

It’s a real pity there is no Web console GUI for it… More to come
