Cloudiway is a SaaS application that allows you to migrate your on Sharepoint On-Premises servers to SharePoint Online (Office 365).
This article explains how it works.

Versions supported

  • SharePoint 2013
  • SharePoint 2016

How it works

The migration is managed from the Cloudiway SaaS application.
However a small local agent must be run on any On-Premises servers to make the bridge between Cloudiway and the On-Premises server.

The agent doesn’t require any installation. It just has to be downloaded and executed from an On-Premises server that has connectivity with the SharePoint servers.

The agent periodically connects to Cloudiway and listens for new jobs to start.
Jobs might be:

  • List site
  • Audit site
  • Migrate site

The agent then runs the job and sends logs and reports to the Cloudiway platform.
The administrator fully monitors the migration from the web interface provided by Cloudiway.
