Breaking the SharePoint Migration Speed Barrier

Breaking the SharePoint Migration Speed Barrier

By Steve Marsh | May 11, 2015

At last week’s Microsoft Ignite conference, Metalogix demonstrated the culmination of many months of work that we've completed with Microsoft to address a huge pain point for any business in the process of migrating to SharePoint Online in Office 365 – the slow speed of migration.

 

On Thursday at Ignite our Tamir Orbach and Microsoft’s Americas Cloud Services' Joe Newell took to the stage to prove that our latest version of Content Matrix has broken the SharePoint migration speed barrier to the cloud by leveraging Microsoft's new API and Microsoft Azure. Now it is possible to exceed that barrier with up to a 30X bump in performance. And if you visited our booth, you would have seen that speed live in action for yourself. Better yet, we can migrate at that speed today if your business has that need.

 

Unlike other migration ISVs who are now coming along for the ride, Metalogix has been deeply involved in this work from the start. We had to be. We enable businesses to successfully perform the largest and most complex Office 365 migrations on the planet with Content Matrix. As the leader in migration, exceeding expectations wasn’t our stretch goal -- it was our minimum requirement.

 

In the coming months we will share the results from several incredible projects that we're undertaking in conjunction with Microsoft to show that we're not just part of the ISVs following Microsoft's new API, we are continuing to leading it.

 

I'd like to give a huge congratulations to Tamir and the rest of the Content Matrix team for making this possible. Also, I'd like to extend a hearty thanks to Microsoft for being such a great technology partner and working with us across their product groups, engineering teams, professional services and account teams to solve this issue for our joint customers. Together, the partnership between Metalogix and Microsoft isn't just words without numbers, it's proof that together, we're helping businesses meet their cloud migration goals faster, safer and sooner. Just as we always have.
