Increase Migration Capacity

Cloud Migration Manager provides self-serviced, data-at-scale migration capabilities combined with usability features expected from an enterprise-grade product. Seamlessly migrate all of your files, folders, and folder permissions from an on-premises server to Egnyte. Cloud Migration Manager is deployed as a virtual appliance which runs on a range of supported virtual machines from VMware ESX/ESXI and Hyper-V 2012/2012R2 platforms.


Migration Capacity

Cloud Migration Manager uses Egnyte's API to migrate data and permissions from your on-premises server to Egnyte. An API key determines how many objects, where an object is a file, folder, or folder permission, that can be migrated per day. An API key is connected to a specific admin user and a specific domain. Cloud Migration Manager has a default API key. However, we recognize that some customers' migration strategies require modifications to the default API key. In this case, please follow the below steps to get and attach a custom API key to your Cloud Migration Manager instance.
