SQL Server to PostgreSQL Migration.

Our DBConvert/DBSync for MSSQL and PostgreSQL cross database migration software helps you to convert and synchronize your databases from Microsoft SQL Server to PostgreSQL / Amazon RDS PostgreSQL / Heroku Postgres and in any other possible combination of source and target . Also, Windows Azure SQL Databases may be set up as a source or target. Our program is able to connect to any local or remote MS SQL Server and PostgreSQL instances.

Although both MS SQL Server and PostgreSQL databases are ANSI-SQL compliant, there are still differences between their SQL syntax, data types, case sensitivity, and these differences often makes transferring data not so trivial if you try to do that manually.

The entire database can be copied from a MS SQL Server instance to a PostgreSQL instance or you can specify partial datasets in a customization stage for each migration.

Using Dump files and PHP load scripts as a destination would be alternative if there is no direct access to servers.


Once data is migrated, all updates can be synchronized from the MSSQL database to the PostgreSQL database can be performed smoothly with our DBSync for MSSQL and PostgreSQL.

Your database will always be up-to-date due to three sync types (Drop, Insert, Update).

Run the program at user-specified time intervals specifying settings at the scheduling stage. Scheduler runs automatically and unattended in the background.

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\mssql2postgresqlPro\mssql2postgresqlPro_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.

Requirements

  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target SQL Server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file)
  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target PostgreSQL server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file or PHP Script)
