Lift is a fully managed data and database migration service. Use Lift to quickly, easily and securely migrate data from your on-premises data sources to the cloud. Lift provides ultra-high-speed data movement to the cloud with embedded IBM Aspera, a highly-efficient data transport technology. When migrating between heterogeneous database engines, an integrated schema compatibility assessment walks you through the process of converting your source schema to your target engine. Migrations with Lift also do not require downtime on source database. As your database migration is progressing, Lift will capture changes to your source engine and automatically replay them to your target.
