Direct Data Transfer

Migrate to New PC with No Effort

Preparing and delivering a new PC to a user with all data and applications can be time consuming and expensive.

With the Swimage Direct Data Transfer module, now all data and settings can be migrated directly from the old PC to the new PC in record time by simply plugging in an Ethernet cable between the two and allowing Swimage to take care of the rest.

This process is simple enough that even the end-user can do it themselves, saving hundreds of dollars per PC in shipping costs alone, not to mention potential user downtime.

  1. Save storage space
  2. Migrate data in half the time
  3. Let users migrate themselves
  4. No longer cross-ship PCs to remote users

How it Works

Start the migration on the new PC as a bare metal box and flag it for Direct Data Transfer.   At the right time during the migration, it will prompt to connect the PCs together with a simple Ethernet patch cable.   The two PCs will automatically handshake, initiating the automatic data and settings transfer from the old PC to the new PC.

Once complete, the new PC will look just like the old PC.

If needed, Swimage can also wipe the old PC once the data transfer is confirmed.
