File Server to Google Drive Migration

Migrate File Server to Google Drive

Migrate files, drives and users from an on-premises file server into Google Drive and Google shared drives. Movebot makes the leap from legacy to modern easy and simple. Movebot does it at a cost-effective price and does it quickly and carefully. There is no need to host infrastructure or deal with a complex migration process.

Migrating from old to new often has its challenges with the biggest being "how". It can be daunting when looking to migrate TBs of data and thousands of users and directories from a local file server, NAS or other form of local storage. Planning is important, especially when gauging the infrastructure limitations and understanding the data structure. 

Movebot is fully cloud managed and hosted, it doesn't require you to host any infrastructure or servers and it makes file server to Google Drive migrations simple. All you need to do is download Movebot's file server agent which is an executable file.

Next, enter your unique token. You can find this in Movebot when setting up an integration. Choose "Microsoft Windows/Apple OSX" and the token for your integration will automatically generate.

Once you have your token, run the agent on your device and paste the token when prompted. Movebot will then be connected to your server. The server will then call out to Movebot via HTTPS (no need for firewall pin-holing) and connect to Movebot.

You can then navigate your folder structure and server, map users via CSV or manually through Movebot's web UI picker and run the migration with full checksum and integrity checking unless disabled.

Cloud-native with zero infrastructure

Movebot integrates natively with 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 specific users, drives and folders into Google Shared Drives to make the content available for collaboration and accessible. 

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, 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. Due to this, it doesn't matter if you have hundreds of files or millions of files, Movebot's infrastructure is scalable and pushes data carefully and quickly.


Simplifying file server to Google Drive Migrations

Another option that you have in Movebot is the ability to run a preflight discovery scan across your local server which simulates a migration and will show you any errors that may be encountered, a breakdown of the entire file and data structure and analytics of the content.

Movebot keeps Google Drive 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 and a chosen Google Drive migration tool globally.

“Simple to use – outstanding support.”

Movebot's support team was legendary in their quick responses and willingness to jump on a video conference to talk through how to resolve the problems. They have deep knowledge of their product and of the file storage platforms their solution is built for. We can approach future migrations with a lot less trepidation – given the accuracy and speed of Movebot, but especially because of their support team.

“Efficient, Reliable, and Exceptionally Supported”

Movebot has been an indispensable tool for our MSP looking for an efficient and reliable data migration solution. Our experience with it across various platforms, including SharePoint, Egnyte, on-prem file servers migrating to SharePoint, and O365 tenant to tenant migrations has been exceptionally positive. Their support team is responsive, offering assistance via and Discord, which was great in a pinch.

“A Game Changer In Data Migration”

Movebot.io emerges as a frontrunner in data migration tools. Its rapid data transfers, user-intuitive interface, and compatibility across cloud platforms mark it as a standout. Added security measures bolster data protection. In the realm of data migration, Movebot.io truly transforms the landscape, offering a streamlined and elevated experience.

“Great team, great product!”

We needed a tool for moving large data sets with detailed enough logging to give us confidence in the successful move of millions of files and folders. Previous tools we used choked on large data sets (>1TB or > 1 Million files) or the logging was too simplistic for us know find errors or have confidence in deleting the source data set at the end of the migration. Movebot solved this for us.

“When you put dedication, attention to detail and quality support, you get this.”

I tried several competitors, and there was always something: lack of human contact, price, quality, speed, etc. I started looking around and ended up meeting with the VP of Sales for Movebot, he jumped on a call, and we went over the product, capability, and next steps and WOW. I have been using Movebot for a while now, and to be honest, there is no one out there doing the job the way they do.

“Amazing tool for migrations!”

Fantastic experience... We were able to do a file migration for a high-priority / high-touch client and move them to Azure AD from their on-prem environment in approximately 48 hours. The scanning and the data move itself really felt seamless. Thank you so much for the tool and to your incredible team!
