Skysync Raises Bar for Enterprise Content Migration Performance

Sets new industry milestones for both speed and accuracy

Continuing to ride growth momentum of companies migrating to the cloud, SkySync today announced that its Enterprise Content Integration platform hit new performance records, significantly exceeding industry averages for both speed and accuracy. As part of a large-scale enterprise content migration initiative for a multi-national consumer packaged goods (CPG) enterprise, the SkySync platform performed file transfers at a rate of almost 60 terabytes per day from an existing cloud service provider to Microsoft OneDrive for Business, while also establishing a new benchmark for migration accuracy.

Global enterprises are faced with an ever-changing and constantly growing, multi-system content storage landscape – which often constrains user access and drives increased costs. As part of an ongoing initiative, this global CPG organization made the strategic decision to migrate over 500 terabytes (TB) of content to Microsoft Office 365 in order to support the evolving needs of their modern workforce.

As a charter member of the Microsoft Content Services Partner Program, the SkySync technical team closely collaborated with Microsoft engineers to carefully tune the migration. Using the Microsoft Migration API for OneDrive and SharePoint, SkySync reached a peak file migration volume of 59.63 TB over a 24 hour period for this particular client.

“The SkySync platform was purpose-built, providing boundless enterprise content migration and integration possibilities that enable organizations to become more agile,” said SkySync founder and CEO, Mark Brazeau. “This achievement validates the stability, scalability and impact our platform brings to market for global organizations seeking to transform their enterprise content management initiatives – no matter how complex.”

Further, the SkySync platform went beyond exceptional speed for this migration, setting a new bar for accuracy. Historically, high-volume file migration projects have realized success rates of 95-99 percent of files migrated. With the client’s volumes exceeding 70 million files, that level of success would have returned between 700,000 to 3,500,000 failed transfers, each requiring some level of human intervention leading to increased project timelines and costs. SkySync’s automated rules engine attained transfer resolution rates exceeding 99.99 percent – more than a 100x improvement over industry averages. For the negligible level of remaining files that could not be automatically resolved, the platform distributes and tracks those items for users to remediate.
