File Migration Service

University IT’s file migration service can help you choose a better storage solution for your data, especially if you need to move a large amount of data from an on-premise server.

The process begins with a consultation with the file migration team, who will evaluate your data storage and data security needs and recommend the best solution. After the consultation, you can engage the team to migrate your data to Google Drive and provide ongoing monitoring of data security and any Protected Health Information (PHI) or Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data. Data migration to OneDrive will be available soon.
