SQL Server to Firebird Migration.

In order to perform migration tasks easily and reliably from a Microsoft SQL Serever to a Firebird target, we offer solutions in the form of DBConvert and DBSync. This software supports using InterBase and Windows Azure SQL databases to be set up as nodes for conversion or synchronization. SQL dump files may be generated to bypass firewalls restriction, if you lack a direct connection to your target servers.

Our DBSync software is dedicated to making synchronization from your MS SQL Server to Firebird and vice versa. Windows Azure SQL Databases or Interbase can be set up as a node for replication as well.

Insert, update and drop synchronization make overall synchronizations possible and your database easy to maintain.

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.
