cloud storage migration

Nava Certus pricing change

Prior to releasing Nava Certus in June/July this year, we conducted a study of the cloud storage and data migration market  in an effort to determine our pricing strategy. This was not an easy task since there weren’t (and still aren’t) that many commercially available tools for migrating data to cloud storage and specifically to Google Drive.

Still, we were able to get an understanding of the market and as a result set the introductory price to $4.99 per GB. At the time the software was released, we only supported migration from file server to Google Drive. Many of our valued customers took advantage of the introductory and we thank them for their trust and vote of confidence.

Since those first days, we’ve been hard at work developing new features. A brief summary of the new features we’ve introduced since then includes:

In order to continue developing great new features and help support our expansion and marketing efforts, we are ending the introductory pricing period. Effective Nov 15, 2013 the new and more permanent price for Nava Certus migrations is $7.99/GB. This is still significantly lower than other competing products and we do not have plans to change the pricing any further.

If you are migrating more than 500GB then you may qualify for a volume discount. Call us for more info.

If you have received a quote from us during the introductory period, we will honor all such quotes until Dec. 1 2013.
We have also modified our reseller pricing. Resellers, please contact us for details.


Dropbox migration; Cloud migration to premise

Nava Certus 1.2
Today, we’re announcing the latest version of Nava Certus. With this release, we bring support for migration to and from Dropbox as well as migration from cloud storage to local premise servers.

We’ve been hard at work trying to realize our goal of making Nava Certus synonymous with cloud storage migration. If you have a request for a particular source or destination, please don’t hesitate to respond in the comments.

Full release notes available here.
Dropbox Migration
Dropbox is now available both as a migration source and destination. Some of the use cases for this are:

Do you have a different Dropbox migration use case? Let us know in the comments.
Cloud migration to premise
We realize that organizational cloud computing strategies can change over time. What made sense a few years ago may not anymore.  For this reason, we’d like to ensure that you’re not locked in and married to your cloud provider. Combined with the document conversion feature introduced in NC 1.1, we can now support a full migration and back-up of Google Apps data in an independent format.

Use cases to consider:

Change in Cloud Strategy

You have a new IT executive and he/she wants nothing to do with the cloud. Or perhaps you’ve merged (or been acquired) by a company that doesn’t subscribe to the cloud mentality. Far too common from our experience. Problem? No problem!

Disaster Recovery

You like your cloud storage, but want to ensure that you still retain your data in a disaster that may affect the cloud provider. Consider the case of Nirvanix, a cloud storage company that […]
