Move data between clouds at 1/10th of the price

Move-data-between-clouds-at-1-10th-of-the-price

Considering cloud storage is becoming the latest utility and data becoming the new oil, the playing field is highly competitive when it comes to storing data. You can store 1TB through Wasabi for $5.99 per month with no fees for egress or API requests. However, the downside is when the time comes to move data to the cloud or between cloud storage at an affordable rate.

Moving between clouds can be expensive with the wrong tool

Migration companies such as Cloudm charge $6000 to move 8TB from on-premise storage to Google Drive, others charge up to $1000 per TB to move your data into Dropbox. These prices are often well over the yearly cost of your cloud storage plan, and often remove any savings when moving to the new provider.

Most of these migration companies also often require you to contact a sales representative and go through their workflow which can add to the barriers and cause frustration when you just want to move your data. All these costs can be significant obstacles to changing clouds, even if a different cloud data storage provider would suit the organization better. 

Move between clouds at 1/10th the price with Movebot

Need an affordable alternative? Try Movebot. Movebot is up to 1/10th of the price compared to others in the market.

At Movebot, our data moving rates are simple and straightforward. The base rate is significantly lower than other file moving companies and we have a simple pay-as-you-go plan. This is great for users with a small amount of data to move or who have a one-and-done data migration.

 

Free pre-migration scan

Connecting your storage without running a scan is a recipe for a disaster, and some companies charge for functionality like this. Not Movebot. The discovery scan is completely free to run, and can even be done as part of a free trial. The scan gives you helpful data insights like how much data you have and potential issues you may run into. 

Some of these issues may be outside of Movebot's control to fix since it never stores or has access to change your data. These issues will be identified in the scan so you can decide the best way to action them further.
