Iron Cove Solutions was selected as the Dropbox deployment partner because of our strong experience of migrating critical business data to the Cloud.
The project started with scoping Adaptives current use and set-up of their existing file server. We determined the total number of users, the type of data (good and bad) and the configuration of our end point cloud migration service; Tervela which we would utilize in the pulling of the data from the local file server to Dropbox.
A vm was established on the Adaptive server. This allowed us to connect and pull information in a very fast format. Tervela allowed us to do the following.
In working streams, we consolidated and configured the Dropbox tenant. The deployment of silent users with their current folder structure and permissions needed to kept in place.
The migration of data stared on December 14, and the completion of all data, rules and mapping was completed Jan 12.
Ultimately, end users were exposed to the elegant and easy-to-use Dropbox user interface and quickly began using the cloud file service for their organization and partners.
The result? A high level of adoption for an enhanced collaboration and synchronization file server providing years of growth around sensitive corporate information and applications.
