If you're looking to migrate a large organization, we're talking 10's of thousands to 100's of thousands of users, or 100's of terabytes to a petabyte, knowing where to start can be difficult. Not only do you have the human element of the migration and working through change management, but you also need to find the right tool that keeps the process simple, cost-effective and can handle migrations of this size.
When dealing with content and data at scale, you have to take into account versions, permissions the way your data is structured at the source and how it will look at the destination, especially when going from a cloud provider whose way of storing data is fundamentally different (think Box compared to Google Drive). Movebot provides the ability to run a preflight discovery scan which performs a scan of your source data platform and will provide a breakdown of the data structure, permissions, versions and any further information on the content.
With migrating such large amounts of users, drives and data, support is key. Movebot offers support as part of the service on the tool. When migrating such large amounts, we understand that it can be a stressful time and you often require a top level engineer on the other end of the phone. Movebot doesn't believe in tiered support, instead when you require support you get an engineer who understands cloud platforms and the Movebot migration tool right from the get go. Movebot's engineers are always available to schedule in meetings to discuss your migration, and during they monitor the migration in the backend applying tweaks to keep it performing optimally.
Movebot also supports all your desired enterprise features from migrating file versions, permissions, metadata and being able to run delta migrations (sync of modified files). Movebot keeps migrations simple, whether it is thousands of users or hundreds of TB, on-premise to the cloud, or cloud to cloud. It's always simple, fast and cost-effective.
