Firebird to SQL Server Migration.

Our DBConvert for Firebird and MS SQL converter imports your InterBase/Firebird databases to Microsoft SQL Server/Windows Azure SQL databases as well in the reverse direction. SQL Dump files may be generated to bypass firewalls, e.g., if you cannot use direct conversion because you lack access to the server.

DBSync for Firebird and MS SQL supports two-way synchronizations from Firebird to MSSQL databases as well as exact synchronization in the opposite direction. Windows Azure SQL databases can also be configured as a replication node. The tool allows you to replicate legacy InterBase database formats to modern SQL Server and Firebird formats and vice versa.

Insert, update and drop synchronizations implemented in our DBSync software keep your databases up-to-date.

GUI Application.

Use DBConvert / DBSync software GUI application to configure parameters for starting a migration process.

In general, the following 4 steps are required to perform conversion or synchronization

  1. Choose Source Database.
  2. Choose Destination Database.
  3. Custoimzation and configuration.
  4. Execution.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps source/ target DB connection settings and other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\firebird2mssqlPro\firebird2mssqlPro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications come with a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Just set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.
