Microsoft Previews Tool to Ease Migration from MySQL to SQL Server
Microsoft has released a new preview version of a tool that enables users of the MySQL database to migrate to Microsoft's SQL Server.
On Jan. 11, Microsoft released a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of the Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) for MySQL toolkit. This tool dramatically cuts the effort, cost and risk of migrating to SQL Server.
A new addition to the SSMA family is the CTP version 1.0 for MySQL that provides an assessment of migration efforts as well as automates schema and data migration from MySQL to SQL Server. Freely download and preview this tool now.
The tool comes in two versions: One for migrating from MySQL to SQL Server 2005 and another for migrating to SQL Server 2008 and SQL Azure -- Microsoft's cloud-based relational database service built on SQL Server technologies.
The tool is supported on Windows 7; Windows Server 2003; Windows Server 2008; Windows Server 2008 R2; Windows.
