The data transferred to the cloud will be using internet service to perform this operation. To cut down the time to transfer the data what Cloud providers do, they send the disk storage or any hardware storage to the client.

Clients transfers the data locally to the provided hardware and then this will be sent back to the cloud providers. Cloud providers then copies all the data to the cloud server as initial back up.
