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.

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.
