Using DSC to Migrate SQL Scripts
The DSC is a CLI tool running on the Linux or Windows OS. It is dedicated to providing customers with simple, fast, and reliable application SQL script migration services. It parses the SQL scripts of source database applications using the built-in syntax migration logic, and converts them to SQL scripts applicable to GaussDB(DWS) databases. You do not need to connect the DSC to a database. It can migrate data in offline mode without service interruption. In GaussDB(DWS), you can run the migrated SQL scripts to restore the database, thereby easily migrating offline databases to the cloud.
The DSC can migrate SQL scripts of Teradata, Oracle, Netezza, MySQL, and DB2 databases.
