The AvePoint Solution
When Eighty20 discovered AvePoint - who they already had a relationship with - offered local support, they decided to fully convert to AvePoint’s migration solution, Fly. The support, paired with the fast customisations and ability to scale, was a major selling point for Eighty20.
“With Fly, we’re able to scale migrations without adding complexity or deploying lots of hosts,” says Terry. “We’re also able to log a case and troubleshoot quickly. If there’s a need to make a change, we can almost do that on the fly.”
Fly delivers a three-step approach – via a self-guided tool or with help from AvePoint – to migrate on-premises or cloud-hosted mail, content, and collaboration into Microsoft 365 or SharePoint. Data can be migrated from existing Microsoft accounts or from SaaS providers such as Box, Google Drive, and Slack.
Eighty20 has used Fly for many different migrations. Recently, they helped a customer migrate Exchange and OneDrive data from one tenant to another. The customer needed to move 2,500 users and 100 TB of data with zero disruptions to their customer base. They were able to do a full migration of all users in one batch, including identity and mail routing changes, and accommodate for the domain transfer at the same time. “We were able to plan, build, and migrate with very few issues and zero disruptions to our customer’s business,” Terry says.
The IT consultants are happy with their decision to standardise to Fly. “We can be confident in the capabilities of the tool and double down on training our team on the tool’s function, capabilities, and output,” Terry explains. “By creating a repeatable process, we are able to drive highly efficient and automated output, which ultimately saves us and our customers time, money, and most importantly, impact.”
They are also pleased with their partnership with AvePoint. “Our experience working with AvePoint and their customer service has been superb,” says James Paek, Eighty20’s Microsoft Alliance Director. “The exceptional support, backed by an incredibly talented partner team, has allowed the partnership to grow and prosper into a long-standing, mutually valuable relationship.”
