Migration and restructuring of SharePoint 2007 (and 2010)

6 05 2010

Recently I have had to migrate from a single server based SharePoint 2007 implementation to a seven server farm. There are many ways to do this but the situation I was in I opted to use Metalogix Migration Manager http://www.metalogix.net/.
Installation is very easy and unlike other products requires no down time, although I cannot remember if a reboot is recommended or not.
I used Metalogix SharePoint Site Migration Manager but the new version which allows you to migrate from SharePoint 2003 or 2007 to 2010 is in beta now, see: http://www.metalogix.net/Products/SharePoint-Site-Migration-Manager-2010/.

I had a few issues with my migration but these were not due to the tool but rather the way the original server was implemented.
The software is updated from time-to-time so check out the full list of features here: http://www.metalogix.net/SSMM/Features/. I recommend testing any software in a non-production environment first.
Overall I would give this product 8/10.
