How to Migrate Your Databases to Oracle MySQL to Cut Costs
The Oracle MySQL database platform is more than 25 years old and one of the most popular open-source relational databases in the world. Since its early days as a community-led open-source platform with limited features, MySQL has grown tremendously. 

Today, MySQL’s benefits include a strong client/server architecture, OS platform independence, high performance, scalability, security and data replication. As a result, many companies want to migrate some of their costly commercial databases, such as SQL Server, Informix, Ingres and Sybase, over to Oracle MySQL, where they can enjoy a much lower total cost of ownership.

What you will learn

In this webinar, experts from Oracle MySQL and Quest® will show you how to:

Determine migration suitability
Performance-test an Oracle MySQL database to ensure scalability 
Round-trip engineer your legacy proprietary database schemas to Oracle MySQL, using data modelling techniques
Generate new Oracle MySQL schemas
Move your legacy proprietary data to a new Oracle MySQL database
