Moving your data to Google Workspace is about to become a whole lot easier

Moving your data to Google Workspace is about to become a whole lot easier ...

Thanks to a new release from Google Workspace, getting your data sent back should soon be a much simpler process.

Google claims that the Workspace Migrate tool provides an easier way for administrators to assess and plan migration initiatives, and "confidently migrate their users and large amounts of critical information directly into Google Workspace."

The tool, originally published in beta way back in 2019, is now now available to international administrators for certain Google Workspace Editions.

In a blog post announcing the news, Google described its new technology as particularly useful for admins looking to transfer a large amount of enterprise data, providing a secure and cost-effective means to transfer information and establish an on-premises infrastructure.

This includes the possibility to obtain data from a wide range of sources, including Microsoft Exchange (covering Exchange 2010, 2013, 2016, and Microsoft 365), Microsoft SharePoint (including SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business), Microsoft OneDrive, file shares, and Box migrations.

It will support legacy G Suite Business and Google Workspace environments, allowing administrators to selectly migrate Gmail, Calendar, Drive, and more data between Google Workspace environments.

Alternatively, the tool will allow administrators to migrate all users from one location to another, or move specific user data (such as organizational units, users, or subsets of data) between Google Workspace environments.

Using frequently updated and detailed reports, the tool will help project managers easily identify progress and status, as well as being able to quickly scan source environments to help better prepare for major project milestones and watchpoints.

Google Workspace Migrate is now available for Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Standard, Education Plus, and legacy G Suite Business - but not for Google Workspace Essentials or legacy G Suite Basic users just yet.

The news comes shortly after Google announced that it would reduce users’ accessing Google Workspace for free.

All G Suite legacy free edition users will be moved over to a paid version of Google Workspace from July 1st, so they can maintain access to tools such as Gmail, Meet, and Docs.

Google Workplace intends to charge $6 per month for its Business Starter package, with Business Standard ($12 per user/month) and Business Plus ($18 per month) on offer, providing an increased level of services as a result of the amount paid.

Google intends to send free users from the 1st to the "more advanced Google Workspace paid subscription," based on its analysis of the customer’s usage and the features it believes you’ll need. The company also offers businesses who do not want to pay or upgrade the opportunity to export their data at no extra cost.
