Migration Overview

Database Migration

Ispirer Toolkit automates the migration of database objects from Sybase ASE to Vertica. Both conversion with connection to the source database, as well as conversion of files containing scripts are possible. Ispirer Toolkit supports migration of the following objects: tables, views, functions, procedures, sequences. As a result, each separate database object is converted to its equivalent in Vertica.

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 Vertica database.

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

Procedure and Function Conversion
Sybase ASE user procedures and functions are converted to UDxs in Java, which are used to deploy Vertica UDF. Each UDx type consists of two classes (one is nested in another). The nested class is the main one, it extends the ScalarFunction class and does the primary work (transformation, aggregation, etc.). The class usually has one method in which the actual work of the source function or procedure is performed. This class is named as the source procedure or function with the appended Factory. The second class is a singleton factory, it extends the ScalarFunctionFactory class. It defines one method that creates instances of the first class, and can define another method to manage parameters. It is named as the source function or procedure. Finally, Java UDx can be deployed to Vertica in the standard way.

Sybase ASE built-in functions and procedures are converted to their equivalents in Java. If there are none, the tool converts them to the methods in a helper class in Java that emulate the same behavior, as well as work just like in the Sybase ASE database.

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.
