Challenges for Moving from SharePoint to Google

Google Drive and SharePoint are different in how they show data and where it is stored, Google has "my drives" and "shared drives" whereas SharePoint works with centralized data within sites that teams can access and work with.

Google offers shared drives and is more flat 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. Additionally, as your data increases and scales, Google is better suited to handle large amounts of files and data as SharePoint often struggles with indexing and handling large amounts of data.

 

Migrating from SharePoint to Google made easy with Movebot

Movebot offers a fully cloud-hosted migration tool that can helps migrate content, sites, permissions, and versions from SharePoint into Google Drive, regardless if you have 10's of TBs or 100's of TBs.

Easy integration

Movebot integrates natively with both SharePoint 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 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 SharePoint sites into Google Shared Drives to make the content available for collaboration and to apply more granular permissions.

Zero infrastructure

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 of millions of files, Movebot's infrastructure is scalable and pushes data carefully and quickly.

Pre-flight scan

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.
