Robinson & Henry, P.C., a full-service Colorado law firm, migrated their data from Box to Google Drive using Cloudsfer cloud migration solutions. They migrated successfully 4.6 TB of data and 110 users. At first, the company search for a migration tool and to migrate all their data to one place. Manish Dhakal, the company’s IT Manager told us that they were using Google for email and making the Google Drive as the storage made sense since the google drive started integrating with Salesforce so having all the data in one place makes sense. Robinson & Henry were supposed to migrate initially into Google Shared Drive as per shareholder decision. First consultation call with Robinson & Henry showed some restrictions and limitations pointing the transition into a Google Drive master account for maximum flexibility. Manish took the recommendations to management which agreed to steer the migration process according to Cloudsfer’s recommendations.
The company had 110 users to migrate, and they thought what will be the best way to transfer all the data and which storage provider. In the first call, after Cloudsfer’s team understood the company needs, they helped them creating a migration plan and providing some advice that helped the company in their migration process.
Using Cloudsfer, user migration tools the client had the option to maintain metadata and migrate security. When migrating a law firm data, it is very important keep and handle all users collaborations and access levels. They also did regular one to one migration. After the first transformation, Manish used the delta migration feature and migrated only latest changes. With Cloudsfer easy to use UI, the migration was completed successfully, migrating 4.6 TB 2 million items, over 520,000 Folders. The whole Box to Google Drive migration process took about two weeks and included both in initial migration and Delta migrations cutover during the weekends.
