SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. It combines a very user-friendly interface with low-cost entry-level configurations. To get all benefits of the most advanced and the most enhanced sql server versions coming to market, organizations often decide to migrate to SQL Server (hosted in Azure SQL cloud or on-premise).
Keeping the same database type as the on-premises database when moving to the cloud lets reduce the maintenance cost of a self-managed database server.
Once you shifted your source database to the target database, you might want to synchronize your databases. This can be achieved by checking one database for updates and then applying them to another database. The source you are migrating continues to change after the initial migration occurs. It drifts from the target database in terms of data and schema.
Also, DBSync software is enhanced by bidirectional replication between SQL Server and other databases. In this scenario, two different databases simultaneously replicate changes from each other.
Depending on the need, you can shift your database either to the same type of database or to a new kind of database.
Note: You can choose any software listed below to perform homogenous database conversion or sync operations. As a bonus, you get one more database which you can select as a source or target.
For businesses that require switching to another type of database, we offer DBConvert and DBSync heterogeneous cross-database migration software solutions.
To migrate and sync your data between SQL Server and the most popular directions like MySQL, Oracle, Postgres, choose a required migration or synchronization tool from the list at the bottom of the page.
Note: All DBConvert software listed in the sidebar performs database migration or sync in both directions:
Although you can use the SQL Server Migration Assistant to automate database migration from multiple DBMSs to SQL Server, they have some drawbacks. DBConvert products address these shortcomings.
