Traferium: all-in-one data migration and code conversion
Moving your data to the cloud requires experience and the right tools. NewWave has both.
There are many great reasons to migrate a data warehouse from a traditional database management system, such as Oracle, to a cloud-based data warehouse solution, such as Snowflake. Some of these reasons are reduced hardware maintenance, improved performance for handling large data, and the ability to scale.
However, migrating from Oracle to Snowflake is not a straightforward process or a straight line. Modern data warehouses, like Snowflake, are designed differently from the start to support business intelligence and analytical workloads. This engineering brings a unique set of challenges.
These challenges often require reconfiguration of applications and data. For example:
- Database vendors, such as Oracle, have adapted the SQL language to include keywords and functions specific to their product. Oracle’s SQL language is called “PL / SQL” and Microsoft’s is called “Transact-SQL”. Scripts and stored procedures that make heavy use of these specific keywords and functions must be written.
- Database vendor specific objects may not be supported on newer platforms – some features, such as stored procedures and sequences, are not supported and must be rewritten.
- OLAP Cube services are not supported because they are not required. You can just write the query and add enough compute resources as needed for performance.
Traferium as a cloud migration solution
This is where NewWave’s Traferium comes in to solve these migration issues. Traferium is an all-in-one data migration and code conversion product. It migrates your tables, your data and much more than that. It goes beyond existing data and schema migration tools to support the migration of stored procedures, functions and will convert PL / SQL scripts into a format that can be used in Snowflake.
