Amazon WorkDocs is launching a migration service to help you migrate your organization's files to Amazon WorkDocs. This service is currently in a private preview.

The Amazon WorkDocs migration service helps you move your users' files and your departmental file shares to Amazon WorkDocs. The service can migrate large amounts of data, from tens of gigabytes to mutiple terabytes.

Using the Amazon WorkDocs migration service portal, you can configure migration tasks, and select the source and target WorkDocs account and site to migrate data to. You can schedule the migration task to execute during a specific period as a one-time data transfer operation or have periodic syncs so as to minimize downtime for your users. The Amazon WorkDocs migration service portal provides up-to-date information and status on migration jobs including detailed reports once migration has successfully completed.

The Amazon WorkDocs migration service leverages AWS DataSync that automatically handles many of the tasks related to data transfers such as network optimization and data integrity validation, which can slow down migrations or burden your IT operations.

You can participate in the limited preview by filling out the signup form. Customers who are accepted in the preview will be notified of next steps.
