2. The Critical Challenges of Migrating From Egnyte to Google Workspace

Migrating data between two different platforms is a challenging job that will certainly put you under a lot of stress. In terms of how data is displayed at first glance, Egnyte and Google Drive look similar. For instance, Egnyte administrator and power user accounts will have Personal (user folder) and Shared folders, whereas a Google Drive business account will have My Drive and Shared Drive.

Though these two platforms look similar, they are inherently different in how they organize the data and how it allows to create and work on files collaboratively.

Your source cloud Egnyte can store different file formats that Google Drive might not support. How you migrate all file types with versions, comments, and timestamps without losing any single file or folder is critical for your business.

3. Overcoming the Egnyte to Google Workspace Migration Challenges

Migrating data from Egnyte to Google Drive is complex and requires the assistance of a viable solution provider who has expertise on both the clouds and has handled numerous complex Egnyte to Google Drive data migrations in the past.

Trying to migrate data from either on-premises or one cloud storage platform to another without an appropriate tool that automates the entire migration process might result in data losses that businesses can’t admit. Hence, organizations considering an Egnyte to Google Drive migration should identify the right data migration tool that fits your business needs.

5. How CloudFuze Maps and Migrates the Data From Egnyte to Google Drive?

The CloudFuze platform can map the users automatically based on their respective email ids. Sometimes there could be a change in the email ids in the destination cloud. The reasons could be:

  • An employee left the organization, and the data should be migrated to a different person to save it.
  • Employees changed their email ids in the destination cloud.

Besides, you might also want to change the path of your folders and files in some cases. CloudFuze migration tool does all this through CSV mapping as per your changing demands.
