Migrate SQL Server data to open source without changing application code

Bill Jacobi

Migrating applications from an SQL Server to an open-source-compatible database can be time consuming and resource intensive. Solutions such as AWS DMS automate data and database schema migration, but there is often more work to do to migrate application code. This session dives deep into Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL, a new translation layer for Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL that enables Amazon Aurora to understand commands from applications designed to run on Microsoft SQL Server. Learn how Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL works to reduce the time, risk, and effort of migrating Microsoft SQL Server-based applications to Aurora.
