Amazon WorkDocs is making generally available a migration service to help you migrate your organization's files to Amazon WorkDocs.

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 multiple terabytes from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).

Using the Amazon WorkDocs migration service application, you can configure migration tasks, 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 regular migrations so as to minimize downtime for your users. The migration service application provides up-to-date information and status on migration jobs including detailed reports once migration has successfully completed. The migration service application can be used by administrators of Amazon WorkDocs sites.

For file migration from network file shares, Amazon WorkDocs migration service leverages AWS DataSync which 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.
