Microsoft SQL Server combines a very user-friendly interface with low cost entry-level configurations. It would be an obvious decision to migrate overgrown Access databases or obsolete Microsoft FoxPro data to MS SQL as they are all from the same vendor. However, for large data storage volumes with a large number of clients it would be prudent to consider cloud-based solutions like MS Windows SQL Azure or Amazon Cloud RDS. Another evaluation consideration would be if increasing MS SQL Server licensing costs would an issue, migration to free PostgreSQL or Firebird databases might be another way to go.
We offer software solutions that make it possible to migrate your data between MS SQL Server and other databases easily, in a fast and flexible manner. Synchronization/ replication tools for moving data between MS SQL and the most popular directions like MySQL, Oracle, and many others are available to download from our web site. They work perfectly in cross-database heterogeneous environments.
Note that two MS SQL databases/ MS Windows SQL Azure may be configured both as a source database and a target.
