Metalogix Announces Essentials For Drives: File Shares To OneDrive Freemium
This week Metalogix announced the launch of its Essentials for Drives: File Shares to OneDrive Freemium. With this new program, users will be able to migrate up to 500 drives (or users) or 1TB of file share content (including files, folders, versions, metadata, and permissions from file systems, file shares or Network Attached Storage (NAS)) into Microsoft's OneDrive for Business.
Microsoft's OneDrive for Business can be purchased as a stand alone product but also comes with Office 365 or SharePoint Online business subscription plans. OneDrive for Business is a cloud-based file hosting service (similar to DropBox, G-Drive, Box, and Elephant Drive) that enables companies to store, sync, access and share files quickly and easily via mobile device or web browser. While the ease-of-use of such cloud-based file hosting services are appealing to end users, the migration and management can present headaches to IT.
Metalogix’s new Essentials for Drives: File Shares to OneDrive Freemium is aimed at helping migration. Metalogix’s new program may help combat the difficulties associated with enterprise file sync and share solutions such as data sprawl, content irrelevancy, and egregious security breaches not to mention difficulty in managing and administrating them.
Essentials for Drives: File Shares to OneDrive Freemium provides a free, easy-to-use tool that simplifies migration to the OneDrive cloud by:
- Identifying and correcting potential migration issues
- Automatically scanning for and optimum provisioning of OneDrives
- Accurately preserving, enhancing or assigning metadata in OneDrive
- Flattening file structure
- Automatically converting folder names to metadata
- Generating detailed logging for post-migration verification and failed item reprocessing
Metalogix Essentials for Drives: File Shares to OneDrive Freemium is available now.
