Box is a leader when it comes to cloud content and governance. It integrates with the Google and Microsoft ecosystems, but also offers in depth reporting and compliance functionality. Transitioning from your current storage platform can be daunting, then add additional complexity, especially when it comes to migrating hundreds to thousands of users and package that with content, permissions and versions. Migrating to Box doesn’t have to be scary, or over complicated — this is where migrations tools such as Movebot can assist and remove the complexity.

If you are looking to migrate between Box and SharePoint See our previous post here.

Movebot offers a fully cloud hosted migration tool that can help you migrate into Box from SharePoint, Google Drive, Dropbox or you on-premise file server or share. Movebot is simple, easy to use and fast. Compared to its competitors it is the most cost-effective tool on the market and is often more than 50% cheaper.

Movebot integrates natively with Box and is a recognized Box partner, so you know you are in good hands. Along with this, Movebot can handle error handling to streamline your Box migration and ensure you don’t leave anything behind. When it comes to more complex migrations, Movebot supports file versions, permissions, metadata and the ability to exclude certain file types.

As Movebot is fully cloud hosted, it means that you don’t need to manage the infrastructure or install any software. Additionally, due to this Movebot can scale to meet your demand. Each transfer (user, drive, site, etc.) is run on its own dedicated compute node (worker) ensuring that not only are migrations secure, but also performant. With this you can add more compute to your larger transfers to increase the performance and throughput. Due to this it doesn’t matter if you have 100 users or 30,000, Movebot’s infrastructure is scalable and isn’t here to muck around.

Another option that you have is the ability to run a preflight discovery scan across your source platform which simulates a migration and will show you any errors that may be encountered, a breakdown of the data and analytics of the content.
