SQL Migration

Seeking faster adoption of Microsoft SQL Server, many enterprises need a solution that can accelerate SQL migration with zero downtime.

There are lots of reasons to consider a move to SQL Server. Able to run both on premises or on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, this leading database and data warehousing platform can help to reduce costs, improve ROI, enhance agility and increase productivity. SQL Server can also help to improve data connectivity and data prep for analytics by consolidating heterogeneous data into a single repository while improving security of data assets.

The biggest challenge of adopting SQL Server is ensuring zero downtime during SQL migration. When refreshing and transferring data to new databases, organizations need to keep current databases fully operational and allow users and applications access to data during the SQL migration process. To smooth migration, enterprises need an SQL migration tool that can enable near real-time transactional replication to minimize impact on source database production and SQL databases. And to minimize the burden on IT teams, enterprises require a solution that can automatically adjust data types from various sources as it is transferred during SQL migration.
