Storage migration: Combine Azure Storage Mover and Azure Data Box

If you are looking to migrate your data from on-premises to Azure Storage, it can be challenging, but with Microsoft's solutions, you can make it as simple as possible. Azure has come up with robust solutions that can help you transfer your files and folders to Azure, and has provided Azure Storage Mover, a fully-managed migration service. Also, Azure Data Box allows you to transport terabytes of data to Azure swiftly, affordably, and dependably.

Combining the two services, Azure Storage Mover and Azure Data Box can provide an effective file and folder migration solution that minimizes downtime for your workloads. Azure Storage Mover can detect the differences between your on-premises storage and cloud storage and can effectively transfer any updates and new files.

You need to migrate your data from source to target several times to reduce the duration your workload will be offline during the switch. This also establishes a predictable downtime period for users and business operations reliant on the workload. Azure Storage Mover can assist in achieving both goals.

It's important to note that this method may possess limitations for some cases such as an extensive collection of small files with a high change rate, constantly open files, and more. In such cases, specialized migration tools tailored to those specific workloads where convergent, n-pass migration strategy won't work is recommended.

Overall, combining Azure Storage Mover and Azure Data Box makes data migration simple and less hectic, reducing downtime to your workloads with their file and folder migration solution.
