DryvIQ is designed to orchestrate both simple and advanced file migration from Box to Google Drive. From highly scalable and A.I.-driven intelligent migrations to synchronizing on-premises files to the cloud, DryvIQ delivers at scale.

Full-fidelity Google migration with reduced overhead & costs

Unlike basic “lift and shift” or user-led approaches, DryvIQ preserves all aspects of file fidelity file migrating files from Box to Google Drive, including permissions, sharing profiles, unique source system attributes, and links. DryvIQ also automatically detects broken .XLS links, zips forbidden file types, repairs filenames and more while transferring content from Box to Google Drive.

To further reduce IT costs and risk, DryvIQ automatically maps users, groups, permissions and accounts across Box and Google.

Compared to legacy file transfer resolution rates of 90-95%, DryvIQ’s transfer rates often exceed 99.99%. This 500x increase dramatically reduces the level of IT overhead required to resolve flagged file transfers.

DryvIQ’s unique continuous copy mode executes file transfers in the background—completely transparent to end-users users—with zero impact to existing workstreams or system integrations. The platform ensures that Google Drive files are up-to-date in near real-time and precisely mirror what was previously stored in Box.

The Dryv platform’s intelligent migration capabilities address the complexities of moving files from Box to Google Drive – but there are several important considerations before migrating your content.

Migrating native Google Drive file types

Google is one of the cloud repositories that’s developed its own proprietary file types with its online editing suite. The three primary file types that are integral to Google Drive migrations are Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets. The Dryv platform has implemented configurable features to accommodate all of the different migration scenarios to maintain content in the desired format.

G Suite permission complexities

Google Drive supports very complex ownership permission structures that don’t translate well to other cloud content repositories. Many users in Google Drive work with files and folders that have different permissions than the top-level folder. For example, permission levels in Google Drive and OneDrive for Business seem similar; they both follow the concept of owner, editor, and reader for instance. However, both platforms differ in the way they store content. And this doesn’t just go for OneDrive for Business; organizations can apply the differences discussed below to most other cloud repositories. For these examples, we will be comparing Google’s permissions to Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business.

Google Drive stores data in one, centralized location. Google Drive uses permission levels on the drives, folders, and documents to build a dynamic interface allowing users to visualize the content as they need it. This can make for some very complex G Suite migration scenarios.
