If someone asks you to transfer data from Beijing, China, to Shanghai, China, is it fast by network, or is it faster to copy hard drives? Perhaps many people’s answers are of course faster with network delivery.
Amazon launched a data truck service that uses an 18-wheel heavy truck to transport data. Why is it that in the highly developed Internet today, Amazon still uses this old method, which depends on the amount of data that needs to be transferred.
We assume that 1EB data is transmitted from Beijing to Shanghai. Using a 10G private network can transmit up to 1.25GB of data per second, which takes about 27 years, while using a data truck takes only about three days, so when the amount of data is huge, the speed is faster. .
