I was recently working on learning various new stuff. I just would like to share very interesting resources here today. Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) is a toolkit that dramatically cuts the effort, cost, and risk of migrating from any other data platform to SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Azure.
Here are few important resources links:
One very front page of the blog, I noticed very interesting diagram – where it displays four database products. One can click on any of them to go to detail description of the same. Here is interesting Video regarding this tool.
- Planning Your Database Migration
- Analyzing Database Using SSMA
- Converting Schema to SQL Server
- Migrating Data Using SSMA
- Automating Database Migration Using SSMA Console Application
If you have any particular question or need help regarding migration – you can always reach out to me and I will do my best to help you.
