Migrating from Server/DC

Elements Overview is a standalone cloud application originally offered as the Data Panels feature of Copy & Sync on premise.

At Elements, we're fully committed to making your path from Server / Data Center to Cloud as seamless as possible.

We're working hard to ensure that in the coming months the value you can get from the Cloud application of Elements Copy & Sync On Premise data panel feature matches and even exceeds the one you currently get with on Server / Data Center.
While this is our goal, we know that today there's a gap in functionality between our Server / Data Center feature and our Cloud app. 

Most of the key functionalities of the Server / Data Center feature will be implemented, however, due to functional differences between the Cloud and Server platforms, we are not able to deliver 1:1 feature parity between the environments.

Rest assured, the Elements team is working hard to ensure our Elements Copy & Sync Server users find similar functionality in Cloud and enjoy an excellent experience with our Cloud app.
