Is this related to not underestimating the bandwidth of a box of 9 track tapes on a Greyhound bus from Lebanon, NH to Burlington, NJ?  

(As I recall you also had a similar usage story circa 1989 or thereabouts)

Not floppies, but several Azure Data Box Heavy <> will be used for this task, which should be a little faster than the two weeks it would take to push 1.25 PB over a 10 Gbps network link.

However, since the customer has decided not to upgrade their 200 Mbps link to 10 Gbps, the Data Boxes should be much faster than the 652 days it would otherwise to push that 1.25 PB.

Or so we hope...

The only problem is where to buy floppies. I haven't seen them in stores for a while now. I am preparing my own letter to Microsoft. I've been a good boy throughout the year and I deserve some presents.

Tim, et al,

Due to security, there was no way we were allowed a network connection between current production and Azure.
