Google Drive (Workspace) Enterprise Migrations
Google Drive Enterprise (Workspace) migrations can be complex and there aren’t any migration tools that make the process easy or simple. Google has some quirks, such as daily upload limits. Movebot is a simple to use, fast and cost-effective Google Drive migration tool. Movebot’s pricing starts at 0.39 cents and scales from there, even more Movebot offers partners 20–40% margin on all migrations.
Google Drive is a simple storage solution for businesses who are after collaboration and accessible data regardless where they are located. The solution is easy to pick up and use and is included within Google Workspace subscriptions. However, migrating users and content into Google Drive from other clouds such as Dropbox, Box or from on-premise file servers and shares can be difficult as there is no dedicated migration tool for Google Drive. Other tools try and do too much such as email, calendar, and have other products. Movebot does one thing, and one thing well and that’s migrate data from point A into Google Workspace (Drive). Movebot supports migrating users, shared drives, permissions and file versions at scale and without a hitch.
Movebot handles errors on the go 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. With Google Drive you can load-balance across users to increase the performance and speed of your migration. Additionally, you can get a full report on your data, or see the flagged issues before you even move a file.
As previously mentioned Movebot’s pricing is cost-effective and starts at 0.39 cents per GB up to 10TB, then over that the pricing drops to 0.29 cents and once you get about 50TB pricing scales down even further. Movebot supports its service provider partners by offering on-demand engineering support and 20–40% margin on all migrations. This enables you to provide your customers their migrations at greater discount or increase your own profit margin.
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 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.
Movebot keeps migrations simple, whether it is, hundreds of users or thousands of users, on-premise to the cloud, or cloud to cloud. It’s always simple, fast and cost-effective.
