BOSTON, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tervela, the provider of automated and high performance data migration and sync solutions, announced today at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference its partnership with Microsoft as an independent software vendor. Cloud FastPath, Tervela's cloud orchestrated data transfer solution, now supports Office 365 and Azure. Cloud FastPath is now able to rapidly accelerate an organization's adoption of Microsoft's cloud-based products SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, as well as enable IT and developers to create flexible, high performance data transfer pipelines into Azure Blob Storage.
Microsoft's Office 365 environment encourages user collaboration, file sharing, rich administrative features and mobility. In addition, replacing legacy on-premises systems with Office 365 reduces IT labor costs, maintenance and fixed hardware costs. However, content migration, sync and mirroring of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business poses a significant challenge for companies looking for full user adoption of Microsoft's cloud-based offerings.
Cloud FastPath offers a fast, simple and secure solution for end-to-end self-service migration for the SMB and enterprise alike. Cloud FastPath's rich features for migration planning, analytics, enhanced transfer performance and thorough post-migration reporting provide IT and MSP's with a central console to manage massive migrations from on-premises infrastructure and other cloud-based platforms.
Cloud FastPath's transfer performance as well as its flexible pricing and licensing are not seen with other vendors in the Microsoft migration and sync market. For example, Microsoft customers can migrate hundreds or thousands of users from Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or on-premises systems to OneDrive for Business without friction or any action taken by the users. In addition, Microsoft customers are able to pay for only what is needed without complicated terms.
Cloud FastPath's powerful simulate feature can be used to scope and profile user content before any transfer takes place. This gives actionable insight into what content can be left behind as well as any file permissions that were incorrect. Then, from the web based panel, IT is able to migrate individual user content into new OneDrive accounts with automated scheduling and accelerated transfer speeds.
"Microsoft's workplace offering with Office 365 is unmatched as an end-to-end workplace IT solution, but realizing the savings of this feature-rich cloud service can only occur once all of an organization's content has been transferred to it," said Eric Schnadig CEO of Tervela. "We offer IT and SharePoint administrators a fully cloud orchestrated migration solution which only focuses on performance and migration tools – without complicated add-ons or modules."
Cloud FastPath is also able to map user and group permissions from on-premises systems, Box, Egnyte, Dropbox, and more to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online. As part of this announcement, Tervela is offering special pricing of the user and group permission feature for companies moving into Office 365 systems.
