Pitt's Cloud Storage Migration

Box is ending unlimited storage and putting in place significant changes to its licensing structure. After discussions with various stakeholders, analyzing survey feedback from Pitt Box users, and evaluating alternatives, the University has decided to replace Box with Microsoft OneDrive for cloud storage and collaboration by August 2022.

Moving to OneDrive enables integration with powerful Office 365 collaboration tools like Teams and SharePoint, while leveraging the University’s strategic partnership with Microsoft to provide many of the same cloud storage capabilities users are accustomed to with Box.

The University has selected a cloud-migration tool called SkySync (replacing the previous mover.io tool) to automate the migration of your files from Box to OneDrive. More information about the SkySync migration process will be provided soon.
