Mid-Size Data Migration Utility Recommendations

I’m looking for some possible suggestions for utilities to move SMB file shares to Nutanix Files. I’ve read most (if not all) the documentation in the portal and I’ve even migrated a few of these shares using robocopy (not without some learning experiences). However, most of the shares I have to migrate are 500 GB - 1.5 TB and business critical. Frankly,  I’m not looking for any additional Robocopy learning experiences. So, I’m looking around for a good utility somewhere between Robocopy and Miria’s Atempo. The solution doesn’t have to be free but I don’t want overkill. Any suggestion?

It may be worth adding that I am using Windows DFS as well. The source shares are DFS targets and I’m pointing the DFS targets to the Nutanix File Shares after migrating the files.

Hi DenaliDan,

In the hope that it might be helpful, in addition to the Atempto, there are two other tools that Nutanix recommends: DobiMigrate and Peer Software.
