Mover Helps in Cloud Storage MigrationCanadian startup Mover offers hosted cloud storage migration and backup services that promises to make changing cloud storage operators easy for small and medium sized companies.

Mover says it supports the major cloud storage providers including Box, Dropbox, Copy, Egnyte, SharePoint, Google Drive, Amazon S3, (S)FTP and WebDAV.

The small Edmonton outfit boasts it’s helped tens of thousands of companies transfer hundreds of millions of files.

Seed Funding

Mover recently raised a million bucks in its seed round to pump up its sales and marketing efforts.

Investors in the seed round include Double M Partners, Yaletown Venture Partners, Amplify, Medra Capital, and angel investors Jarl Mohn, Rick Barry of Quant Ventures, and Dennis Phelps.

Mover started life as Backup Box when founders Eric Warnke and Mark Fossen experienced difficulty transferring files from an FTP server to Dropbox. Backup Box was subsequently merged into Mover.

Vancouver startup accelerator GrowLab gave a fillip to Mover by investing in the fledgling.
