If you do any kind of business online, chances are you use an online storage platform and sometimes, your needs change and you need to move your files. But don’t worry - moving from cloud storage platforms, or on-premise file servers to Dropbox couldn't be easier. The Data Migration Add-On, powered by Movebot, makes it simple, secure and affordable, without the need for software deployment or complex processes.
Whether you are transferring a single drive, a team or an entire organization, Movebot's cloud migration tool has been built to make your Dropbox migration simple. Not only can you quickly and securely migrate files, you can also copy over all of the associated permissions from on-premise file servers and existing cloud storage solutions to Dropbox.
So, what can I do with Movebot?
Well, first of all, you can:
Migrate home directories, folders, and personal shares to Dropbox
Transfer sharing permissions from cloud and on-premises sources to Dropbox
Monitor file transfer jobs in real-time with reporting, visualization, and event-logging
Automate and expedite migrations with parallel loading, Dropbox API call optimization, and Movebot’s managed scalable technology
Schedule migration jobs in advance — to run once or on a repeating schedule.
But you don’t just have to take our word for it, Jack is a senior designer on the team over at Graphicks, a creative agency, who recently used Movebot to transfer their files over to Dropbox, and he said:
Movebot and Dropbox have made our lives so much easier. We used Movebot to migrate around 2TB of data from a different cloud service to Dropbox and the process was very smooth. We work with a wide range of file formats and both platforms supported our every need.
We deal with large design files on a daily basis, which makes the different sync options available on Dropbox vital to our workflow. Being able to collaborate easily as a team from different parts of the country is essential.
As a creative agency we needed a more collaborative and cost-effective solution to managing our files. Dropbox was an easy choice as other solutions have fewer features and don’t handle larger files formats as well. The unlimited storage that Dropbox offers means that we can continue to grow as a team without the worry that we will run out of storage – something that our previous platform would constantly remind us of!
