The Windows Server Agent is a small binary that moves data from a local server to the Movebot cloud and onto the destination cloud storage provider.
This software is run as an executable and can be also run as a service. While every migration is different, we recommend the resources below.
|CPU||4-8 VCPU Cores|
|Hard Disk Space||32GB of free disk|
Supported Windows Versions
Below are the current supported and tested versions of Microsoft Windows that the Couchdrop Cloud Connector agent supports.
|Windows Server 2012 R2||Yes|
|Windows Server 2016||Yes|
|Windows Server 2019||Yes|
|Windows Server 2022||Yes|
For help configuring the agent on servers that are not supported, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will need Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 to open the agent.
Migrations are upload intensive by nature and so the speed of your migration will be heavily dependant on your internal and external network capacity. We recommend a 1Gb uplink speed over fibre where possible.
If you are experiencing performance issues with the Agent, we recommend running a speed test and ensuring you are selecting a Migration region that is close to the agent.
The Movebot agent communicates with the Movebot control plane and APIs exclusively via HTTPS. This means that no additional ports are needed to be opened, however if your organisation has a proxy server or web filter, you may need to allow the following domains out.
