“For those customers who want to transition their applications from Oracle or SQL Server to Amazon Aurora or any of the open source engines supported in Amazon RDS (MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB), the AWS Schema Conversion Tool converts database schemas and stored procedures from one database platform to another.
â€œHundreds of customers moved more than a thousand of their on-premises databases to Amazon Aurora, other Amazon RDS engines, or databases running on Amazon EC2 during the preview of the AWS Database Migration Service,â€ said Hal Berenson, Vice President, Relational Database Services, AWS. â€œCustomers repeatedly told us they wanted help moving their on-premises databases to AWS, and also moving to more open database engine options, but the response to the AWS Database Migration Service has been even stronger than we expected. In the preview, one-third of the database migrations used the AWS Database Migration Service to not only move databases to the AWS Cloud, but also to switch database engines in the process.â€”
See Amazon Web Services Announces that over 1,000 Databases Have Migrated to AWS since January 1, 2016Recent discussions here included a thread about the chances of users of Oracle escaping to PostgreSQL. Apparently, there are enough people doing it that Amazon provides a migration service for databases to its cloud with the capability to do most of the changes needed automatically. They would not have done that if there weren’t a demand. Amazon is in business to make money, not to promote FLOSS.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
