Even with high speed internet connections, it can take months to transfer data sets to the cloud. 100 terabytes of data transferred over a dedicated 100 Mbps connection will take 100 days. Fireball can get you up and running in 1/10th the time.
High speed connections into your office are expensive and require long term contracts. Fireball is an on demand service that puts your data directly into the industry's most affordable, high performance cloud - B2.
The Fireball device has a number of features including best in class encryption. Your data is secure throughout the process.

"We found the B2 Fireball much simpler and easier to use than Amazon's Snowball. WunderVu had been looking for a cloud solution for security and simplicity, and B2 hit every check box."
