As an administrator, Google Workspace Migrate allows you to move large amounts of content into a Google Workspace domain. With Google Workspace Migrate, you can manage large-scale migrations into multiple Google Workspace core services from a single place.

You can run Google Workspace Migrate from the cloud or on-premises. The product operates separately on your managed software so you can control the timing and destination of a migration.

Your data stays on your network. You retain ownership of the data migrated to Google Workspace and Google does not sell your data to third parties. There’s no advertising in Google Workspace and we never collect or use data from Google Workspace services for any advertising purposes.

Should I migrate data on-premises or in the cloud?

We recommend migrating data in the cloud using Google Cloud.

Google Cloud allows you to quickly get started because there’s no infrastructure to purchase and maintain. Migrations are also faster because all Google Compute Engine node servers are connected within the same zone and on the same service account. This setup reduces latency and improves overall migration performance because Google Workspace APIs have a quicker response time.

While Google Cloud is recommended, you can use on-premises hardware or a different cloud provider if needed.
