Database Migrations

Migrating your databases might sound difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. No matter where your databases are or where you’re taking them – to the cloud, an on-premise system, or a hybrid deployment.

Cloud Migrations

Should you lift and shift, partially refactor, or completely refactor your apps when porting to the cloud? Our team has migrated hundreds of critical workloads to, from and within public, private and hybrid cloud environments—so we’ve seen your use case before and we have a proven methodology to get you to cloud faster.

Pythian can help you plan and execute your database migration with Cloud technologies like:


  • Azure DB for MariaDB
  • Azure DB for MySQL
  • Azure DB for PostgreSQL


  • Amazon DynamoDB
  • Amazon Elastic Block Store
  • Amazon Elastic Container Amazon RDS


  • Cloud Bigtable
  • Cloud Datastore
  • Cloud Spanner
  • Cloud SQL

Migrating from one database platform to another
