Box to Google Drive migrations


Migrate your organization's content, users, versions and permissions from Box into Google Drive and shared drives with Movebot. Movebot simplifies data movement at a cost-effective price and does so in a quick and careful manner. There is no need to host infrastructure or deal with a complex migration process. 

Google Drive vs Box

Google Drive and Box are different in how they show data and where it is stored, Google has "my drives" and "shared drives" whereas Box strictly has user drives and Google's equivalent of "shared with me". There is no centralized location within Box to store files from an organizational perspective.

In contrast, Google offers shared drives and is flatter in how it operates, but offers ease of use, simplicity and a simple way to collaborate and work with content in the cloud. Google's shared drives are centralized and enable businesses to host content in a centralized manner with permissions.

Movebot offers a fully cloud-hosted migration tool that can help migrate content, users, permissions, and versions from Box into Google Drive, regardless if you have 10 or 100,000, users or are moving 1TBs or 800TBs. Due to Movebot being completely cloud-native and its simplicity, it can scale to meet any demand and continue to offer this with speed. 

Project - Box to Google Drive

Simplify your Box to Google Drive migrations

Movebot integrates natively with both Box and Google Drive and handles errors automatically to streamline your Google Drive migration and ensure you don't leave anything behind. Movebot will automatically alert you to Google Drive limitations such as the 400,000 file limit in a shared drive, or help your migration perform faster by bypassing Google Drive rate limits. With Movebot you can migrate individual Box folders into Google Shared Drives to make the content available for collaboration and to apply more granular permissions.

As Movebot is fully cloud hosted, it means that you don't need to manage the infrastructure or install any software. Because of this, Movebot can scale to meet your demand. Each transfer (user, drive, folder, 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. It doesn't matter if you have 100 users or 30,000, Movebot's infrastructure is scalable and pushes data carefully and quickly.


Moving data without the complexities

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.
