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 120,000, Movebot’s infrastructure is scalable and is used by service providers across the globe to migrate large amounts of data.

Movebot supports all storage platforms whether they are cloud (Google Drive, SharePoint, Dropbox, Box, Egnyte, Amazon S3, etc.) or an on-premise file system (NAS, file share or file server).

Movebot performs error handling to streamline your migrations and ensure you don’t leave anything behind. Movebot will automatically correct character or file type issues that may crop up during the migration and convert Google Docs into Microsoft Format on the fly. Additionally you can get a full report on your data, or see the flagged issues before you even move a file. 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).
