Google Cloud to Wasabi Cloud Storage Migrations


If you are looking to migrate hundreds, if not thousands of terabytes of data from Google Cloud Storage to Wasabi Hot Cloud Object Storage this can be daunting. But where do you start? Migrating hundreds of terabytes from Google Cloud to Wasabi is possible thanks to Movebot. 

Why move from Google Cloud to Wasabi?

The presumption is that you are migrating to save your precious monthly pennies and remove those excess GCP fees. Google by far is the most expensive solution when it comes to object storage, and Wasabi on the other hand is the cheapest. Using Wasabi's online comparison tool, for 500TB with 20% accessed each month, you can save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. 


More than simple file moving

If you are wanting high performance and all the bells and whistles, this is when cloud data migration tools such as Movebot come into play. Fully cloud-native and easy enough that you can set up and walk away, Movebot makes data moving easy. With tools like a pre-flight scan, comprehensive reporting, and an in-depth data explorer, Movebot makes sure your data ends up where it needs to be. 

Movebot provides full logging, governance and reporting on your data so you know what makes it across, and what doesn't and why. As well you can see a breakdown of the data and its structure. We always recommend starting with a pre-flight scan. It's free and lets you know if there is anything you need to do on your end before moving files to ensure they are moved over successfully.
