About the data migration service

If you have the legacy free edition of G Suite, upgrade to G Suite Basic to get this feature. 

As a G Suite administrator, you can use the Google Admin console to migrate your users' data to G Suite. Using the data migration service, you can migrate email, contacts, and calendar resources. The setup is simple and most mail servers can automatically connect. 

You don't have to install an application—you control everything in the Admin console.

Is this service right for my migration?

If you prefer a cloud-based migration tool to one that you install and you only need to migrate from a single-source server, the data migration might work for your organization. To use this service, you must migrate email, calendars, and contacts individually in separate migrations.

However, if your troubleshooting requirements are more complex and you need detailed logs, the data migration service might not fit your migration needs. Perhaps you have high-level IT or programming skills at your disposal. See Migration tools for large imports
