Database Migrations

Achieve successful cloud migrations

By using HVR for your migrations, you gain a flexible and easy-to-use solution that simplifies setup and management of your database migrations.

Organizations use our solution for various migrations scenarios and to eliminate downtime. HVR’s bi-directional replication feature allows systems to run concurrently for zero downtime. If an error is found, you can reverse the replication even after migration. As a last failsafe, the compare and repair function ensures your data is always in sync.

With HVR, you can:

  • Reduce risk
  • Prevent data errors
  • Ensure high availability

I’ve had a really good experience using HVR recently. It was surprisingly easy to get setup and get running, and the error messages were very helpful in terms of figuring out which configuration issues were blocking. I’m doing a one-time Oracle to PostgreSQL migration without any continuous replication.

Reduce risk and minimize downtime during data migrations

Technological changes, added data sources, and new business initiatives are a few of the many reasons for data migrations.

Your organization may be looking to execute one of the following common types of migrations today or in the near future:

  • Upgrade to the latest version of a database for compliance reasons
  • Migrate to a different database vendor to reduce cost
  • Migrate to another OS (i.e. large endian to small endian, or vice versa)
  • Changing to another hardware vendor and/or adopting virtualization
  • Move high volumes of data from on-premises to the cloud

During these migrations, your challenge is to reduce or eliminate downtime while extending the time available for a successful migration.

Database Migration with Minimal Downtime


Our website is pretty busy. Having it unavailable for any length of time is highly undesirable. The fact that we were able to get our downtime window to half a day was huge. Without HVR, we would have had to perform the entire migration at once—and the end-to-end time for getting back to business would have been days.– Larry Blake, Managing Director, Enterprise Data Services at Teach for America
