An Expert Guide to Migrating Legacy Databases to Postgres in the Cloud

Date: 2019-10-17
Time: 10:30 - 11:20
Room: Parini
Level: Beginner

Licensing complexity, rising costs, and audit risk are motivating legacy database users to accelerate their migration efforts to alternatives like open source-based Postgres in compelling numbers. The presentation will discuss why legacy migrations are picking up steam and provide data showing what types of constructs are migrated most often.

Migration can present challenges, however. Some organizations are hesitant to move, citing technical, integration, and knowledge risks among the reasons. In this presentation, we will highlight the typical problems encountered and share technical solutions to overcome these issues. Additionally, we will examine alternative migration scenarios including lift-and-shift and the transformation of monolithic databases into mini/micro-services based solutions.

The presentation will conclude with a live migration demo featuring a number of the tools and technologies available to help you move your legacy database to the cloud with ease including EDB’s Migration Portal, EDB Postgres Advanced Server PL/SQL capabilities and EDB’s Cloud Database Service.
