From high-capacity enterprise storage products to scale-out architectures and unified storage, FusionStorm offers a comprehensive suite of storage solutions for every need and budget.
As a leading IT solution provider, FusionStorm leverages Dropbox for collaborative processes and secure file sharing.
However, while the majority of FusionStorm employees have fully adopted Dropbox, another large portion were working primarily with Box. FusionStorm wanted to consolidate its file sync and share systems into a single platform for better data governance and licensing leverage. The first hurdle on the path to consolidation was migrating FusionStorm’s users from Box to Dropbox. Dropbox recommended Cloud FastPath as a best in class data migration solution; FusionStorm also evaluated one other product to compare features and benefits.
After careful evaluation and trials of both alternatives, FusionStorm selected Cloud FastPath, because it was simpler to deploy and manage and provided a more cost-effective solution. With Cloud FastPath’s one-click agentless deployment, FusionStorm was able to configure and run jobs in minutes. The competing solution’s deployment required significant time and babysitting and required the FusionStorm IT team to set up their own dedicated environment.
Intuitive Permission Mapping
When FusionStorm tested Cloud FastPath, the first turn-up went very smoothly because of its intuitive design to set-up source, execute, and sync. Furthermore, Cloud FastPath automatically migrated user and group permissions between Box and Dropbox. The Cloud FastPath team was also very helpful in demonstrating how to use the product, accompanied by an engaging video with an easy to understand tutorial on permissions and how to perform the mappings.
Example user mapping
Further tipping the scales in favor of Cloud FastPath was timely and helpful support. FusionStorm experienced the commitment and dedication of the Cloud FastPath team during both the trial and the subscription periods. Large file transfer jobs were scheduled to run over a long holiday weekend. During this time, the Cloud FastPath support staff went the extra mile to address issues and ensured that the migration occurred as expected.
A great product and outstanding support made Cloud FastPath a winner for FusionStorm.
