On-premises file migration to Dropbox

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Jul 13, 2021 5:15:15 PM

With the current trend in the migration market being on-premises file servers and shares to the cloud, it is only fitting that migrating to a cloud storage platform such as Dropbox aligns with businesses digital transformation and resilience strategy. The benefits of migrating to a platform that is agnostic such as Dropbox are the cost vs hosting infrastructure, the security and ability for users to collaborate without VPNs, its ability to work with both Google Workspace and O365 for document editing and collaboration and when comparing Dropbox to the likes of SharePoint, Dropbox does not charge for data but only users. When your data reaches a certain threshold in SharePoint, SharePoint struggles handle the amount of data and comes to a grinding halt, but also pricing becomes prohibitive.

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Jun 28, 2021 11:04:52 AM

Box recently announced its new Box Shuttle service which provides 10TB free when using its self-service tool for primarily lift and shift migrations from common storage providers (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.). This new service comes off the bat of Box’s acquisition of Cloud FastPath earlier this year. Should you have more than 10TB  or a more complex migration (Egnyte, S3, GCP, Azure) then the price is $500/TB.

File Server to SharePoint Online

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Apr 22, 2021 10:37:31 AM

For many organizations the consideration of moving their documents and files into enterprise cloud storage such as SharePoint and Dropbox is a priority. This priority has been driven not only for companies wishing to stay agile and flexible, but primarily due to the remote work phase that has taken place since COVID-19. Having a legacy file server sitting in a datacentre or a cabinet in an office has been seen to be unproductive and costly for organizations looking to enable their remote workforce. From a productivity view, the inability to easily collaborate with a file server hinders teams as VPNs and other barriers negatively impacts a user experience. From a technology perspective, a file server does not have the resilience nor redundancy and is a large capital and continuous support expense.

Zero Infrastructure Migrations

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Mar 17, 2021 11:55:13 AM

When you are deciding on a content migration tool to migrate data into the likes of Google Drive, SharePoint, Dropbox or even block storage you need to consider the requirements of the tools and what is actually required before you can consider migrating a single file or user. A lot of tools require you to host their software within cloud infrastructure such a GCP, or Azure which induces further costs on top of the licensing cost you're already paying for. This also adds additional support complexity and creates barriers when it comes to migrating data.

Google Drive Migration Limitations

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Mar 10, 2021 8:45:39 AM

Migrating files and content into Google Drive, users or shared drives can be straightforward. There are only two limitations when migrating into Google, one being shared drive limits and the other is a daily upload limit per user, however both are easy to work with, especially compared to the likes of SharePoint that has restrictions on character types and file path lengths. Migrating out of Google is a different story, but migrating in, is very simple. Below we will cover the two limitations of Google Drive and how you can work around them or with them.

How to migrate Google Drive to OneDrive

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Jan 12, 2021 12:14:15 PM

If you are looking to migrate your business's Google Workspace or your individual Google Drive into Microsoft's OneDrive this can prove to be difficult and take a long time, especially when you have a large amount of data or users.

 

Google and OneDrive are fundamentally different in how they handle data, Google for one is a bit of a wild west where you can have duplicate files, it supports Google Doc format (which no one else does) and accepts all character types and formats. Contrary OneDrive does not allow duplicate files in the same folder, supports Microsoft's file formats and has character limitations. Due to just these reasons, moving between Google Drive and OneDrive can cause headaches and unwanted stress.

Movebot announces file server agent

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Jan 5, 2021 10:49:29 AM

After the year that has been, it's clear that the need for businesses to migrate to the cloud is paramount. This is not only to enable collaboration for those working from home, but also to ensure data security is governed correctly and maintained throughout the work day. It's time to remove the pesky VPNs that keep breaking and reboot that old file server into the cloud. 

To help businesses migrate their users, content and data structure into the cloud, Movebot has released an easy to run agent that works across Windows machines. There is still no need to install any software, it runs as a simple executable that turns your file server into "just another cloud" for Movebot to migrate from.
