Configure real-time replication jobs and setup redundancy, mirroring, and synchronization for critical CIFS or NFS volumes
Manage all migration jobs and monitor resource consumption in real-time from a centralized easy-to-use console
The built-in AI automatically prioritizes data sets for parallel transfers based on file size, type, and the number of users accessing them to shape the traffic in a way that optimizes transfer speed and performance.
Files are broken down into smaller data sets (or shards), transferred parallelly and then recombined at the destination. This hash based distributed process amplifies transfer speeds.
Intelligent AI based hashing optimizes the process for speed. StoneFly Migrate does not need to process or store lengthy logs for transfers; this makes it faster than traditional migration software.
Each data shard has individual data integrity hash-checks. In the event of a corrupted shard, only the shard is transferred again from the source instead of the complete file. This saves time and ensures data integrity.
StoneFly Migrate analyzes available system resources like CPU, memory, and network and dynamically allocates them to different processes for optimized performance.
Unlike traditional data transfer software that maintain logs for different processes, StoneFly Migrate analysis data on the fly without creating large directories or sub-directories. This makes it an efficient and light-weight enterprise migration tool.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is this a free trial?
No, the current software version is available for free.
How many terabytes of data can I migrate with this software?
There’s no data transfer limit. You can migrate as many terabytes as you need for free.
Can I setup real-time replication with this software?
Yes, you can configure real-time replication so that the data on the source is always synced/mirrored at the destination automatically as long as the VM is running.
Can I schedule migration jobs?
Yes, you can schedule migration jobs to start at specific hours, days of the week, and weeks of the month. The migration workflows start automatically on scheduled times as long as the VM is running.
Can I transfer data from any physical NAS to a virtual NAS deployed on VMware or Hyper-V (or any other hypervisor)?
Yes, you can transfer NAS volumes from any physical NAS to any virtual NAS (vNAS).
Supported hypervisors include: VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, Citrix or XenServer.
Note: Both NAS appliances have to be on the same subnet.
Can I migrate data from a virtual NAS to another physical or virtual NAS?
Yes, the software supports data transfers for virtual NAS (vNAS) deployed on VMware, and other industry standard hypervisors. You can also opt to transfer NAS volumes from physical to virtual or vice versa.
