File migrations to the cloud in 2021

Cloud file transfer

Cloud file migration services are becoming more common as organisations and enterprises look to make a move to the cloud. According to IBM’s 2020 cloud trends, hybrid multi-cloud solutions are emerging as the favoured strategy for organisations.

With further trends and advances in technology; 5G, automation, and open-source tools, cloud transfer technologies have a big part to play and need evolve to optimise this experience.


Movebot by Couchdrop enables you to migrate files, users and drives to your cloud using its on-premises migration agent. It’s integrations and partnerships with cloud storage providers across the spectrum from the likes of Wasabi, Backblaze to Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, and other cloud storage platforms.

Movebot provides the ability for quick and secure file migrations. Movebot has been built as a self service solution that enables you to migrate anything from a few TBs to hundreds of TBs between clouds or into the cloud.
