Migrating Databases to MySQL
Percona can help you evaluate and complete a migration (switch) from a proprietary database to MySQL. We are experienced with conversions from Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, and Sybase. Percona provides an unbiased source of advice. Our first question is whether MySQL is suitable for your application. Sometimes it is not.
If MySQL is suitable for your application — and in many cases it will work very well — then the chief benefit is the dramatic cost savings and reduced complexity of the database.
Important topics to consider include “how do I migrate stored procedures from Oracle,” “what is the best high availability strategy,” or “how do I manage monitoring, backups, and recovery?“
If migration seems right, we move from analysis through strategy, planning, testing, and finally the production implementation. Percona can provide high-level advice, or mentor your development team in MySQL best practices, or implement the whole migration hands-on ourselves.
A migration is not always simple. We perform complex analysis and planning, to ensure that your migration will go smoothly even if it's very involved. If you're thinking about migrating from Oracle, you can see the types of questions we consider in this blog post by our Chief Performance Architect.
