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.

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

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.

G Suite to Dropbox for Business Migration

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Oct 6, 2020 11:19:51 AM

Dropbox and Google are both two of the most common cloud storage providers out there. Dropbox had it first, and Google has managed to build a solid reputation for Google Drive in small businesses and education. When it comes to cloud storage, Dropbox is a lot more feature rich and actually offers a sync agent. Google previously offered File Stream as an agent but has now turned its agent into a backup product.

 

Both Dropbox and Google have some similar characteristics when it comes to files and their storage, both have individual user drives, team (or shared) drives and a shared file system ("shared with me in Google Drive).

How to move your Team from G-Suite to Dropbox for Business

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Jun 11, 2020 4:20:39 PM

Moving your individual storage from one provider to another is one challenge, but how about moving your entire team, or better yet — your organization? Often you have to outsource this work or find hacky solutions to help make the move bearable. Or, download all the files and then re-upload (sync) the files to your new provider. This last option is great if you have lots of time and enough space to handle the data.
