G Suite Migrate, new first-party data transfer product, launching in beta

What’s Changing 

We’re launching G Suite Migrate in beta. This new first-party product will help admins assess and plan migration projects, and confidently migrate large amounts of valuable content directly into G Suite. G Suite Migrate is built on the technology from Google Cloud’s AppBridge acquisition in 2017.

Who’s impacted

  • Assessment - Quickly scan source environments to help accurately plan for key project milestones and watch points 
  • Migration - Quickly migrate valuable data from a variety of sources (see below)

G Suite data migration and sync tools ending support for Windows XP and Server 2003

On December 31, 2018, we will discontinue support for Windows XP and Server 2003 in the following Windows-based G Suite data migration and sync tools:
The Windows XP and Server 2003 platforms are no longer supported by Microsoft. If already installed, the G Suite tools will continue to function on these platforms, but will not be actively tested and maintained, and will not receive security updates. If you are still using one of these unsupported platforms, we encourage you to move to a newer version of Windows.
