Here are some major updates:

  • Multiprocess conversion from Oracle to MySQL has been released. Now migration is speeded up twice. Depending on the hardware, data types and other criteria, migration speed can exceed 30 GB/H.
  • Multiprocess conversion from DB2 to PostgreSQL has been released. Conversion is accelerated 4 times. Depending on the hardware, data types and other criteria, migration can surpass 60 GB/H.
  • Improved reporting of the conversion errors caused by license restrictions.

As for migration quality, we continue to work hard to improve the results of automatic conversion. The process of adding new conversion rules is continuous. The following migration directions received updates this month:
