What is IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration?

IBM® Cloud Mass Data Migration uses 120 TB-usable capacity storage devices to accelerate moving data to the cloud and overcome common transfer challenges like high costs, long transfer times and security concerns — all in a single service.
IBM Cloud Mass Data Migration

Move data fast

Using a single Mass Data Migration device, you can migrate up to 120 TB of data (at RAID-6) in just days, as opposed to weeks or months using traditional data transfer methods.

Flexible and scalable

Whether you need to migrate a few terabytes or many petabytes of data, you have the flexibility to request one or multiple devices to accommodate your workload.


Moving large data sets can be expensive and time-consuming. Each Mass Data Migration device is offered at a low, flat rate including round-trip shipping and 10 days of use at your site.

Simple process

IBM sends a pre-configured device for you to connect, ingest and ship back to IBM for offload to the cloud. Once offloaded, enjoy access to your data while IBM securely wipes the device.

Round-trip data protection

Rely on AES 256-bit encryption, RAID-6 configuration and rugged, tamper-evident, waterproof, shockproof cases to protect your data from the inside-out during device-handling and transport.

DOD-level data wipe

IBM uses a four-pass, DOD-level data wipe to help ensure complete erasure of all customer data from Mass Data Migration devices.
