Zero Outage Oracle to DB2 Migrations
IBM has enabled the Oracle PL/SQL APIs in DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows v9.7; 97% of Oracle application code will work unmodified. So, how best to migrate the Oracle data to DB2? The IBM Data Migration Tool (IDMT) fosters a batch migration which requires an application outage - backup, IDMT, restore, SET INTEGRITY - which can last for hours or days depending on the volume of data and complexity of the data model. What if my website, eCommerce, OLTP application can't be down that long? Learn how a world-wide Top 50 financial institution migrated data from Oracle to DB2 with a minimal application outage using InfoSphere Replication Server's heterogeneous replication from Oracle to DB2.
