Ispirer Toolkit for Automated Migration

SQLWays Wizard Logo

Ispirer Toolkit is a robust solution for automated heterogeneous database migration and application conversion. Using this tool, you can transfer not only tables and data, but also stored procedures, functions, packages, views, and triggers. This solution is based on an intelligent proprietary algorithm that analyzes data types, relationships between objects, reserved words, and even code structures that do not have equivalents in a target technology.

Ispirer Toolkit supports both legacy and most popular RDBMS, such as Informix, Sybase, DB2, Teradata, Firebird, Progress, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL. To ensure a smooth migration process, our support experts are available to assist with tool configuration or resolve any issues in a timely manner.

Migration Overview

Database Migration

Ispirer Toolkit automates the entire migration of database objects from PostgreSQL to Azure SQL Database. Both conversion with connection to the source database, as well as conversion of files containing PL/PgSQL scripts are possible. The first option is most recommended, because the tool will get all the required information about object dependences directly from the database. Ispirer Toolkit can migrate the following objects: tables, data, views, functions, procedures, triggers, sequences, user defined types. As a result, each separate database object is converted to its equivalent in Azure SQL DB.

If you have your own applications, the Embedded SQL and Database APIs can be converted using either Ispirer Toolkit or Ispirer Service. As a result, they will be able to work with your new Azure SQL Database.

Table and Data Conversion
Ispirer Toolkit converts tables with all related objects (indexes, referential integrity constraints) and data into the target Azure SQL Database. All PostgreSQL native data types are converted to the Azure SQL Database equivalent. If necessary, the user can change the default settings of data type mapping.

Procedure and Function Conversion
PostgreSQL user procedures and functions are converted to stored procedures and functions, written in Azure SQL syntax, depending on the version of the target database. PL/PgSQL built-in functions and procedures are converted to theirs equivalents in Azure SQL DB. If there is none, the tool will try to convert the functions to SQL Azure expressions. They will emulate the same behavior or generate user-defined function that will work the same as in the PostgreSQL database.

Trigger Conversion
Ispirer Toolkit automatically migrates PostgreSQL triggers and their functions to Azure SQL Database triggers. PostgreSQL trigger logic is moved to the trigger function as well. The trigger name in the target database will be the same as in PostgreSQL.

Working with User Defined Types
Ispirer Toolkit supports conversion of user defined types to their equivalents in Azure SQL Database.

Sequence Conversion
PostgreSQL sequences are converted to Azure SQL DB sequences. This is the default behavior of the migration tool.

Migrate Logic From Database to Application

Ispirer has a solution to unlock the full potential of your database. Storing business logic in your database can sometimes impede performance, but Ispirer Toolkit can help you migrate this logic to an application layer seamlessly.

    BL Migration
  • Automated conversion of SQL objects to application code. Ispirer Toolkit supports Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, PostgreSQL, Java, C#, Python, etc.
  • In case of changing the RDBMS, Embedded SQL will be automatically rewritten to adhere to the syntax of the new database.
  • Migration with\without connection to databases. Ispirer Toolkit can work with or without a database connection. Both options allow you to successfully migrate business logic from the database to the application layer. However, it is worth considering that connecting to the database allows Ispirer Toolkit to take into account additional data from the database and helps improve conversion.

"The Ispirer team turned out to be very responsive, our customization requests were processed very quickly.Thanks to the tool, the only thing left to do was to fix 2 or 3 statements that were not automated during the migration process."

"Ispirer MnMTK was crucial to the successful completion of our database conversion project. We had tried several different strategies and tools previously and none of them compared to Ispirer MnMTK. It was definitely money well spent."

"We were thrilled when we found out that the migration could be performed only in a few months taking into account the large amount of data that need to be converted and our specific requirements."

"We found the SQLWays product and the Ispirer Systems support staff to be an enormous asset and an exceptional value to our migration team. The interface with the entire Ispirer organization was seamless and extremely efficient."

"We have found the tool to be powerful, and robust, which has facilitated the smooth conversion of one of our core systems from Informix 7.3.1 running on a Sun Unix enviroment to an enviroment running Windows Server 2008 SQL Server 2008."
