My team was able to migrate almost 16TB of data using AWS Database Migration Service. The solution works fine for my use case.""The solution is instantaneous.

"It is fully featured. It has allowed me to do everything I wanted to do."

More JumpMind SymmetricDS Pros →

"The initial setup can be difficult for beginners in AWS Database Migration Service. You will need the training to complete it.""Migrating from here and pushing the data from on-premise to AWS cloud is a big challenge and a few more services from AWS would be helpful. For example, we are currently using ILDB internet tools which move data from on-premise to the AWS cloud. A few more services would be really helpful for me to move the master data.""This solution is compatible with only AWS.""More endpoints need to be supported by AWS Database Migration Service. There's also a need for more control and transparency on the product, including better technical support.""What needs improvement in AWS Database Migration Service is that it lacks a log file validation feature. If the solution could provide more details about a particular transaction, that would be helpful. The stability of AWS Database Migration Service for online CDC records also needs to be improved.""Database Migration Service could be more integrated. I think that it makes sense to add integration to these functions. For example, AWS Glue has a feature called Orchestrator to create data flows, and that's more straightforward.""The server has limits on how many can connect to the database.""If they had some sort of functionality where, at a specific point in time, if I want to start a new job, it should automatically pick up from where it has been left rather than having people worry about the exact job number and the timing."
