After years of helping customers move to Box’s platform, Tervela’s Elite Technology Partner status validates the importance of an effective, automated migration solution for successful Box adoption. Complex migrations become secure, simple, fast, and predictable with Cloud FastPath’s powerful pre-migration analytics, flexible permission mapping, accelerated transfer speeds, and thorough post migration reporting. 

“We’re excited to have Tervela join the Box Technology Partner program as an Elite partner, enabling companies to more easily make their transition to the cloud and retire costly legacy network drives,” said Scott Porter, VP of Business Development at Box.

Customers of Tervela and Box have realized significant cost savings and productivity gains after completing the following kinds of migration projects with Cloud FastPath.

File Server Replacement
As organizations adopt Box as their cloud content management system of record, costly on-premises file servers storing both user and shared content become redundant. Cloud FastPath provides a streamlined solution for migrating geographically disparate file servers and portions of expensive data centers into Box. After the migration, these user drives and file systems can be decommissioned, saving organizations hundreds of thousands of dollars in hardware refresh and maintenance costs, while simultaneously increasing the data security. 

Consolidation of Disparate Cloud Systems – US Acute Care Solutions
A typical organization today has both sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud file platforms in use. Standardizing on Box provides IT with greater control over business-critical content and reins in costly and vulnerable shadow IT initiatives. To provide a smooth changeover from disparate cloud providers, it is necessary to preserve file ownership, sharing, permissions, and external collaboration properties during the migration. Migrations from other cloud providers can be achieved extremely quickly due to Cloud FastPath’s built-in automation features and transfer performance. 

For US Acute Care Solutions, migration of cloud file platforms into Box is an important part of their long-term Box adoption strategy:

“After we made the strategic decision for Box to be our single source of record for digital content, we relied on Cloud FastPath to migrate and consolidate the acquired company’s cloud file platforms into Box. We are big fans of Cloud FastPath because it simply just works. We use it to understand how permissions and users map into Box, and to execute the migration strategy that’s right for our internal departments and the acquisitions we make.” – Greyson Morrow, System Administrator at US Acute Care Solutions

Legacy Enterprise Content Management Replacement
Migrating content off legacy ECM systems with metadata intact is critical for the content to be accessible, sharable, and valuable once migrated to Box. Cloud FastPath easily connects to on-premises systems and provides insight to what content exists, where it resides and how it should be mapped and migrated into Box. 

Cloud FastPath Market Traction
Cloud FastPath has been used to migrate hundreds of customers and their business-critical data onto Box including leading companies such as Fox Entertainment Group, Icade, MagMutual, Macnica, Tape à l’œil, Cedars-Sinai, CSU Chico, and many others.

“Enterprises are moving their content to cloud platforms at a record pace and Cloud FastPath provides the best onramp for this journey,” said Eric Schnadig, CEO, Tervela. “When migrating digital content, confidential data, and the most valuable assets that organizations manage, it’s imperative that companies select the right product and the right partner. We’re thrilled to be recognized as an Elite Technology Partner of Box and play an integral role in helping companies realize the full reward of cloud platforms.”
