MySQL to MS SQL Migration and Sync

Our software automates conversion and synchronization of your databases from MySQL to MS SQL Server. Transfer the entire database or select only needed dataset at customization stage in easy-to-use wizard style GUI.

Views migration between MS SQL and MySQL in both directions is available. You don’t need to know any differences in SQL syntax. Every view will be converted from source db to target automatically.

Integrated Data Types Mapping feature helps to find and map similar data types between MySQL and MS SQL Server to make cross database conversion more flexible. Read more info about Data types mapping between MySQL and MS SQL Server.


Moving data from MySQL to MS SQL Server. Key points.

Is Microsoft SQL Server superior to MySQL or not? Does MSSQL have any pros or cons that MySQL might not have?

There is not a simple answer to this type of questions. Both MySQL and MS SQL Server database technologies are ready and mature enough to be used in real world production environments.

At the core level, both have a lot in common. Choosing one over the other depends on the business needs, available budget and environment.

  • MySQL was designed especially for small and medium web sites and it is very good at servicing these requirements. SQL Server is aimed at corporate markets was developed specifically for large enterprise databases. Advanced set of SQL features, superior replication, clustering, security and management tools are fully implemented for MSSQL.

  • MySQL is open source software. In contrast, SQL Server is closed, proprietary storage engine. But MySQL openness does not mean free of charge in production. Usually, LINUX/UNIX maintenance & administration services cost more than WINDOWS ones. And, it is not enough to just acquire licenses.

  • Another key point of comparison is that MySQL is multi-platform, while SQL Server works on Windows OS only and probably there are no any plans to change that. So, if your applications built with .NET and work mainly on Windows platform, the obvious choice is MS SQL Server as back-end.

  • From a database developer’s standpoint, choosing between a MySQL and SQL Server DBMS is a matter of database application scalability. SQL Server databases can be easily migrated to Microsoft SQL Azure servers with no hassle.

So if you decided to choose SQL Server as a back-end for your application or need to replicate/ synchronize data between MySQL and MS SQL DBMS there are solutions for automating your migration jobs.

You can put the result into a dump file instead of transferring it directly to another MS SQL database.

Trigger-based synchronization method helps increase the speed of data comparing and replication significantly.

Use built-in Scheduler to automatically launch the conversion and synchronization tasks.
