File System

File systems

User home drives, corporate shares, server based data, workstations, EMC Centera data stores, you name it really. Simply Migrate makes migrating, discovering and reporting on your data easy and fast.

Knowing where your data is, who has access to it, and your storage footprint makes for better planning.  Being able to easily integrate Simply Migrate into your existing scripts, makes it even easier to make decisions on that data’s future.

Let’s have a look at some of the key points around this.


File system discovery, migration, and reporting has been an frustrating issue for many years for many organisations, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  Usually the reasons for the issue fall in to a few different categories.

  • We have loads of data all over the place, and long file paths are problematic to discover or migrate.
  • We have a hard time determining where our files are.
  • Our data exists in cloud services and on local infrastructure.
  • We don’t want multiple technologies to have to be run to report on our data.
  • It’s really expensive and time consuming to do something about it.


Simply Migrate is here to help solve all of those barriers with you.

We believe that file system discovery, migrations and reporting should be simple, fast, and informative without the massive overheads delivered with other solutions.
