Learn more about Database Migration to SQL Server
SQL Server migration experts
ANSI SQL was created to ease the work of SQL users across various database engines. However, database vendors developed their own procedural extensions. As a result, migration efforts are usually more complicated because vendors lock users to certain procedural extensions. Furthermore, different vendors use different versions of SQL, which may not be perfectly in sync with established ANSI standards.
With almost 2 decades of experience in migrating workloads, ABCloudz has an extensive knowledge of migrating all the major databases presented on the market including SQL Server, which is the third most popular database management system.
We effectively utilize the SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) to translate database objects, SQL code embedded into the app, and data to SQL Server. As a company that took part in the development of SSMA, we know how to tweak and set up the tool to make the best use of it.
Our migration practice also includes key technology platforms, as shown in the video below.
