Microsoft launches Oracle database migration service • The Register

Microsoft is launching a database migration tool to make it easier for Oracle users to switch to a PostgreSQL managed service on Azure.

Coinciding with the Ignite bash in Redmond, the provider is offering Azure Data Studio, a cross-platform database assessment tool to ease the move from Big Red to a Microsoft PostgreSQL-compatible managed service.

The preview Database Migration Assessment for Oracle “provides database migration recommendations and an assessment of database code complexity. These changes will simplify migration planning for Oracle customers looking to modernize their data assets to Azure-managed databases,” Microsoft claimed in a statement.

It says Oracle customers could get size recommendations for migrating Oracle Database to Azure Database for PostgreSQL and Azure SQL, including Azure SQL Database Hyperscale, which works for large workloads up to 100TB.

“Azure Database for PostgreSQL and Azure SQL Database offer excellent value for Oracle customers looking to reduce management overhead and optimize database licensing costs while maintaining performance,” it said.

Earlier this year, Oracle and Microsoft announced Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure, an Oracle-managed service for Azure customers that helps them deploy, access, and operate Oracle Database services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). a familiar Azure-like experience.

Carl Olofson, IDC Research Vice President, said, “Microsoft has offered basic Oracle to SQL Server/Azure SQL Database migration capabilities for some time. Many enterprise Oracle database deployments are very complex, making migration difficult and fraught with risk. This service is intended as an expert service to provide a safer and more reliable form of migration.”

For some time, PostgreSQL supporter EDB has been offering an Oracle migration service for users looking for a future outside of their traditional homeland.

Elsewhere at Ignite, Microsoft said it is adding distributed PostgreSQL support for Azure Cosmos DB, its distributed database service built on top of the Hyperscale (Citus) engine. It also previews R statistical language support in its Synapse data warehouse. ® Microsoft launches Oracle database migration service • The Register
