Fast, Reliable Migration to Microsoft Azure Databases

The new Striim Database Migration Service, StreamShift, now supports enterprises moving from database sources such as Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, and MongoDB to Microsoft Azure. The service helps accelerate the transition to Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Database for MySQL, Azure Database for MariaDB, and Azure Database for PostgreSQL. Customers can run the legacy source and target Azure database simultaneously during migration, ensuring there is no application outage.

“Microsoft is committed to making migration to Azure as smooth as possible, while paving the way for continuous innovation for our customers. Our goal is to build technology that empowers today’s innovators to unleash the power of their data and explore possibilities that will improve their businesses and our world,” said Rohan Kumar, Corporate Vice President, Azure Data at Microsoft. “We are pleased to work with Striim to provide our customers with a fast way to replicate their data to the Azure platform and gain mission-critical insights into data from across the organization.”

Striim’s patented platform ingests high throughput data from multiple sources non-intrusively and with sub-second latency via Change Data Capture (CDC) and performs in-line mapping and transformations before delivering to Azure Cloud Databases.
