SQL Server migrations: plenty can go wrong, we're afraid to say

We have over ten years' experience of migrating SQL Server databases, so we're familiar with most - if not all - the many things that can go wrong!

We've overseen hundreds of Microsoft SQL Server database migration projects, meaning that we're ideally positioned to provide expert help and advice around the best way to go about things.

SQL Server Version Migrations

These are the easiest type of migrations, but things can go wrong if you're not familiar with what you're doing. We've had plenty of time with all versions of SQL Server Database, including SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014, so we know how avoid the potential pitfalls. We can help with this, regardless of the size of the job. To find out more, please visit our SQL Server Upgrades page, or our SQL Server Version Guide.

Cross-platform SQL Server Migrations

If your database is migrating to another platform, it could go smoothly, but equally you could have all sorts of problems. We understand your pain, and our aim is make the process as simple as possible for you, minimising downtime. Our team are particularly skilled when performing migrations from/to Oracle databases, but we also have recent experience providing complex migrations from Access and MySQL databases.

Operating system SQL Server migrations

This is usually the most complex operation, where plenty can go wrong. You don't want data to go missing or become inaccessible during what is effectively an elaborate export and import process between two operating systems (OS). The Xynomix team have carried out hundreds of Microsoft SQL Server database OS migrations for our clients, so we can anticipate problems and manage them using techniques honed over the years.
