Update: This article has been updated to reflect changes for 2024. 

Cloud file transfer services are becoming more common as organizations and enterprises look to make a move to the cloud. In 2024, over 90% of organizations use cloud computing in some form. However, many still have files stored on old, obsolete on-premises file servers. Moving data into the cloud in 2024 is easier than ever, thanks to data moving tools like Movebot.  

Storage in the cloud

One of the most common uses of cloud computing is for storage. According to IBM’s 2020 cloud trends, hybrid multi-cloud solutions are emerging as the favored strategy for organizations. With further trends and advances in technology; 5G, automation, and open-source tools, cloud transfer technologies have a big part to play and need evolve to optimize this experience.

Having storage in the cloud offers a lot of advantages. But getting it there can be a challenge. The easiest way to move large amounts of data to the cloud is by using a data migration tool. There are several tools that you can choose from to move your storage infrastructure to the cloud. Some of the most popular options are Cloudfuze, Cloudsfer, Mover, and Movebot.  

 

Cloudfuze

Cloudfuze is a simple solution that provides a simple cloud file transfer and cloud migrations that supports over 40 cloud storage providers (DropboxEgnyte, etc.). They offer detailed tracking and notifications around your cloud transfer jobs and have a friendly UI that allows for easy navigation.

To ensure that larger organizations can also reap the benefits from this service, they support multiple accounts within the same cloud service and the ability to move files between them. Their cloud file migration runs in the background unattended to ensure you aren’t sitting there watching grass grow, and you can use your time doing other tasks.

Added benefits include maintaining metadata, file filtering, and persistent permissions between sharing and security settings between systems. A big perk of Cloudsfer is its reporting functionality for migrations.

Additional features include scheduling, delta/partial transfers, detailed logging and can handle petabytes of data with ease. A significant benefit of this service is that it maintains your permissions and sharing settings through the migration process.

“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!
