In our project we needed to move 200GB of information from Sharepoint to Connections Cloud.
The File Jockey tool is very suitable for this type of processes since it presents the information of Connections Cloud as a native unit of the operating system, which facilitates the operations between files and the transport of data between Connections Cloud and any other system of storage. Very useful for large file migrations to and from the IBM cloud.
