The S3 storage adoption is growing globally and more predominantly in data centers who previously were operating in a different space. The scalability, affordable nature and ease of S3 storage is creating a better world for unstructured data. With the likes of Cloudian’s Hyperstore, Dell EMC, IBM Object Store and NetApp’s StorageGRID the software layer options are becoming endless.

Movebot works closely with data center partners to increase the rate of storage adoption for their customers, decrease time and save financially when it comes to data migrations at scale. Whether it is a case of onboarding a new client, or migrating from your legacy object storage into your new storage, Movebot empowers you to migrate petabytes of data without any negative impacts on your business operations.

Movebot was originally built to migrate data across S3 compliant platforms and has been seen as an option for cloud storage providers such as Wasabi. Movebot has been built for the cloud and it’s architecture is flexible, adaptable and scalable enabling the platform to have its controller layer hosted globally, but it’s worker nodes (the compute that moves the data) to be hosted within data center infrastructure. With this benefit, the cost and time to migrate data is heavily reduced while ensuring the data center provider has full control and visibility of resources and the data itself.

Another major benefit to hosting the workers within a data centers infrastructure is the added security. If migrating within the data center’s network, the data itself will not leave thus ensuring data sovereignty laws and governance are met to the highest degree. Additionally, if migrating into the data center, data is pulled straight from the source platform (whether this is cloud or on-site infrastructure) into the data center and then into the storage.

When considering options to migrate your customers and data within S3 compliant infrastructure, it would be worth reaching out to the Movebot team and understand how they can help you and your customers with their cloud storage enablement journey.
