The Lialis Lotus Quickr file downloader is a Notes client based solution to download files from Lotus Quickr Places to a local disk.
Migration of Quickr places can be daunting. We developed this Quickr file downloader (a Notes application) as a viable and affordable alternative to some of the available tools in the market.
After the Quickr files have been downloaded to a local disk with our solution they can be easily uploaded into your target environment such as Office 365 Teams/SharePoint or any other destination which can be reached by tools already in place.
The big advantage of this solution is that this tool does not need any installations on the Domino Quickr server.

To demonstrate the download speed of the Lotus Quickr files downloader we have used the following test setup.
A Lotus Quickr server running on a Lotus Domino Windows server which is located in the Amazon cloud in Frankfurt Germany. The performance of this windows server is indicated in the image below.
The Quickr Place used in this test has a size of 3800 MB and it holds 8036 Notes documents which equals to 7358 files with a total size of 3300 MB in the range of 1 KB to 10 MB.
The complete Quickr Place is downloaded to another Windows server located in the same Amazon cloud in Frankfurt Germany.
The download time needed to download the 3320 MB was 18 minutes.
This equals to a download speed of 184 MB per minute.
