Connecting file servers to the cloud

Movebot connects to on-premise servers by using a low-resource agent. Simply download and run the agent on a machine that is networked to the file server, connect using your unique token from Movebot, and you’re good to go. Once connected, the agent saves the configuration so simply have it running in the background whenever you want to connect your server to Movebot.

Connecting via the agent lets Movebot move files between the server and any of the 30+ platforms we support. You get the same features and functionality that you do with cloud platforms including file/folder permission preservation, automatic filename sanitization and doctype conversion, the option to choose your data processing region, and more.

Move terabytes per day into or out of the cloud with Movebot.

Move files on Network-Attached Storage

Once the Movebot agent connects to the file server, it can also move data on NAS devices on the same network. Depending on the specific OS the file server is using, you may be prompted to grant access to network-attached storage. After granting access Movebot can move these files to the cloud as well.

Movebot supports migrating to/from:

  • Windows Servers
  • OSX Servers
  • SharePoint On-prem
  • Legacy SharePoint/Onedrive
  • SFTP Servers
  • NAS Devices
