Migrate your MySQL and PostgreSQL databases using Database Migration Service
Enterprises are modernizing their business infrastructure with managed cloud services. They want to leverage the reliability, security, and cost-effectiveness of fully managed cloud databases like Cloud SQL. In November, we launched the new, serverless DMS as part of our vision for meeting these modern needs in an easy, fast, predictable, and reliable way.
Migrating your databases to Cloud SQL is a critical step in the journey to the cloud, and DMS provides a simple, serverless, and reliable path forward. “We are using Compute Engine for our servers, Google Vision for text recognition, Google Maps for validating addresses and calculating routes for our transfer services,” says Nicolas Candela Alvarez, IT Director at The Excellence Collection. “With DMS we moved our database to Cloud SQL and transitioned to a fully managed database that keeps up with our rapid business growth.”
Getting to know DMS
Customers are choosing DMS to migrate their MySQL and PostgreSQL databases because of its differentiated approach:
Lifting and shifting your database shouldn’t be complicated: database preparation documentation, secure connectivity setup, and migration validation should be built right into the flow. DMS delivered on this experience with MySQL migrations, and has expanded it to include PostgreSQL.
Migrating your database shouldn’t interfere with running your business. DMS migrations allow you to continuously replicate database changes from your source to Cloud SQL to allow for fast cutover and minimal database downtime.
Reliable and complete
DMS’s unique migration method, which utilizes both MySQL and PostgreSQL’s native replication capabilities, maximizes security, fidelity and reliability. These like-to-like migrations to Cloud SQL are high-fidelity, and the destination database is ready to go after cutover, without the hassle of extra steps, and at no additional charge.
