Our goals for technical execution include minimizing the time of co-existence, providing high fidelity transfer of data and avoiding any unplanned system unavailability. BC Cloud Solutions reduces the time of co-existence by executing high velocity cutovers that are typically only limited by the availability of support staff for the day of the event. High fidelity migrations are achieved by selecting the best of breed migration tools for the platforms involved in any given migration and unplanned unavailability is reduced or eliminated by thorough testing, planning, and communications prior to production migrations.

Messaging migration projects are almost always unique in their impact on user’s daily work experience. For many people, their email client is the software where they spend the most time and with which they have the most personal connection. BC Cloud Solutions assists clients by developing a communications, training and change management plan that will ensure that all stakeholders have the information that they need to ensure a well received and successful migration.

Data Migration
File Server Migration to Google Drive

Google Drive allows you to store, access and manage your data on Google’s immense storage infrastructure. It’s everywhere you are, on the web, in your home, at the office and on the go. Migrating your organization’s data off of file servers and into Google Drive eliminates the need to manage, maintain and pay costly fees for on-premise file storage systems such as Network-Attached Storage (NAS), Direct-Attached Atorage (DAS) or SAN (Storage Area Network). Furthermore, migrating your data to Google Drive eliminates disaster recovery concerns and creates an instantly-searchable archive of all your organization’s data.

Google Drive also enables businesses to eliminate the need for and migrate from Open Source file storage systems such as Openfiler, FreeNAS, NAS4Free, CryptoNAS, NASLite, Gluster, Openfiler, OpenMediaVault, the Debian-based TurnKey File Server and NexentaStor, built on the Nexenta Core Platform.
