With new cloud support and centralized management of multiple migrations, IT teams have the flexibility they need to accommodate any PC migration scenario at scale
BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#pcmigration--Laplink® Software, Inc., the global leader in PC migration and creator of the only software of its kind recommended by Microsoft®, Intel® and all major PC manufacturers, today announced the production release of a new version of PCmover Enterprise designed to simplify and streamline PC migrations and upgrades for remote employees.
As enterprises increasingly adopt a “work from anywhere” model, IT teams face unprecedented challenges to efficiently manage PC upgrades and migrations. Each upgrade presents new obstacles, whether it’s spotty connections, low upload speeds, or specialized applications. With the industry’s first cloud integration, the new release of PCmover Enterprise gives IT teams another user-friendly transfer option as well as powerful tools for managing large number of migrations simultaneously.
“There is no-one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to PC migrations at the enterprise scale, particularly when you add remote workers to the mix,” said Thomas Koll, CEO at Laplink. “That’s why we’re giving our many enterprise customers around the globe the added flexibility of leveraging the scale and convenience of the cloud for managing migrations, while also making it easier to manage high volumes of migrations.”
Cloud transfers add flexibility
In addition to direct and file-based transfers, PCmover Enterprise now offers cloud transfers with Azure, AWS and Google clouds. Use of the cloud allows IT administrators to adapt to a range of user scenarios. For instance, in the case of a remote user with slow upload speeds, the user would simply launch a secure upload of their files, settings and data to the cloud via PCmover running on their local PC on a Friday evening. The following Monday, the IT admin loads the data onto the user’s new PC and ships it out via overnight mail. The next day, the user turns on their new PC and they are ready to go – no support calls or panicked efforts to track down missing files, data or applications.
“PC refresh projects performed off-premises are extremely complex, and in some cases not even possible,” said Timothy Worcester, director of customer experience at Laplink. “The ability to perform asynchronous file-based transfers through the cloud will help IT teams overcome the roadblocks they often face with so many employees away from the office.”
PCmover Transfer Manager arrives
Large enterprises also face the challenge of managing hundreds or thousands of ongoing PC migrations across corporate networks. With the new PCmover Transfer Manager, IT managers can completely manage and control multiple migration projects from a single PC. Once the PCmover service is loaded onto an organization’s PCs, the deployment administrator can launch migrations remotely without needing to control via remote session or physically access the machine. This represents the industry’s first data migration tool to support both on-premises and off-premises PC data migrations.
PCmover Enterprise is used by the world’s leading organizations including two of the top four accounting firms, three of the top four automotive manufacturers, two of the top four universities and several government agencies as well as many other companies in consumer electronics, IT consulting, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and many other industries. In addition, Laplink’s consumer product, PCmover, is available from Laplink.com, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Amazon®, Best Buy®, Fry’s®, Micro Center®, Office Depot®, Staples®, QVC, HSN and other major software retailers and PC manufacturers in North America, Europe and Japan.
