An indispensable tool
SharePoint technologies are very powerful, but are missing some easy-to-use management facilities - particularly in migrating content from one deployment to another, either in batches or one document library or list at a time. The Metalogix SharePoint Site Migration Manager is an excellent solution to this problem. I have used the tool on several occasions, to manage both small and large migrations. I find its utility to be indispensable.
IMHO every SharePoint administrator should have a copy of this tool.
Small installation footprint
A Simple Tool with Loads of Power
An amazingly simple tool that provides huge amounts of power. Site Migration Manager (SMM) gives the user a simple copy and paste interface to copy items from one site collection to another. The user is able to copy everything from, multiple webs, single webs, webparts, pages, lists, list views, down to single items. A configuration menu before each copy begins provides the user with the ability to customize how the copy is performed: ignore certain items, certain libraries, map content columns, copy permissions, do not copy webparts, the options are very powerful. A with a simple clean interface which puts alot of power in the hands of its user.
*Copy and Paste interface provide a simple interface for copying over huge amounts of content from one area to another - user can copy Sites, Lists, Permissions, Views, SPListItems
*Supports MOSS to MOSS Migrations, SPS 2003 to MOSS Migration, and SPS 2003 to SPS 2003 Migrations.
*Extensive logging capabilities give a clear picture of what happened during and after the migration
*Batch scripting capabilities allow for multiple actions to be chained together (Batches can be saved locally to disk for re-use)
*Granularity - you can migrate a whole web, a list, a view, all the way down to a single item
*Included service extends the functionality available to the tool
*Product team is easily accessible and answers emails in a prompt fashion.
A mitigator of SharePoint's biggest risk....
At Habanero Consulting, we've used it many times for internally SharePoin migrations and upgrades and for our clients' migration needs also.
The (very) simple setup and easy drag and drop user interface masks the complexity and the time-consuming nature of the task at hand. It takes care of background worries like keeping versioning information, user information, and so on.....
I researched many "migrtion" products prior to my purchase of SSMM. Hands down, it the best product out there.
One key factor to my selection was the method of migration. Other products hit the content data base for the migration, this would void your MS support. SSMM uses the SharePoint API and does and awesome job of it.
Easy to use
API Level Migration
Excellent tool for migrations and SharePoint site
The most useful tool for migrations because it allows you to continue to get value out of the product AFTER the migration is complete!
Administrators will also love that they can work from their desk rather than on the server. Once the server components are installed, the administrator simply launches the Migration Manager and gets down to work.
Easy to use and great support. Worked right out of the box
Worth every penny!
SSMM is every SharePoint administrators dream tool. Easy to install, easy to license, easy to configure, and easy to use.
I've used many SharePoint tools over the years, and built my own as well, but hands-down, this is the best tool for SharePoint administration.
Simple to migrate existing content
I have used this tool on several client projects; this tool can reduce website migration costs by up to 90%. This product simplifies the process of moving content for the content owner, easy to use and retains valuable data
Our need was simple - Migrate our very basic site with limited content from an expired BETA of Sharepoint 2010 to a full Sharepoint Enterprise 2010 installation.
The application functioned flawlessly, allowing us to move all of our content with a few simple selections, and essentially, a cut and paste.
Their support was patient, while I was hurried, and helped walk me through the procedures as I was not terribly knowledgable with the database design of Sharepoint.
All in all, a great experience, and a product I WILL be recommending to my customers in need of a Sharepoint Migration.
Fast to implement the changes required
MOSTLY intuitive on it's functions
Support staff for the product was fast to respond
We used Metalogix to miigrate from a legacy 2003 Portal to a new MOSS system. Worked like a charm and saved enormous amount of manual time and effort. Once the migration was finished, we used the Migration Manager to keep Dev, Test and Prod in sync. Site content could be built and developed, then moved to Test and then to Prod so easily.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as it is a simple and effective product.
- Moved content between 2007 servers and 2010 servers with complete accuracy and integrity
- Allowed modification of content during copying if needed
