Database Migration to SQL Server

We are the go-to partner for migrating Oracle, SAP ASE, IBM DB2, MySQL, and Access databases to Microsoft SQL Server.

SQL Server migration experts

Historically, ANSI SQL was created to make it easier for users of the SQL language to work across different database engines. However, database vendors created extensions like PL/SQL, Transact SQL, DB2 SQL, etc. This approach complicates any migration effort and binds the users to a certain technology. The core idea is that once these vendors lock a user into their extensions, it will be harder for customers to move to another database platform.

Our unique experience and comprehensive knowledge

The ABCloudZ team has over 18 years of experience with migrating customer’s workloads to SQL Server. We utilize free migration automation tools like SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA)  to translate Oracle, Sybase ASE, IBM DB2, MySQL, and Microsoft Access database objects, ad-hoc code, and data to SQL Server. Helping customers migrate to the SQL Server data platform, our team discovered multiple shortcomings and pitfalls of this automated migration tool. What is even more important — this team of prolific experts knows all the workarounds to address these issues.

Our migration practice also includes the key technology platforms as shown in the video below.

Leveraging these migration best practices acquired over the years, we help customers with assessment, conversion of database schemas and scripts, application remediation, data migration, testing, performance tuning, and many other steps of database migration projects.

What makes ABCloudZ unique

Very simply, this is what we do — day in and day out. With our unique and long-lasting database experience, we know all about the SQL Server migration best practices.

Here is one example of a large US public sector education organization. They wanted to reduce maintenance costs due to the expensive Oracle licensing model. They asked, why to pay more for a basic feature like table and index partitioning. SQL Server supports partitioning similar to Oracle at no extra cost!
