Striim Announces a New Fully Managed SaaS Preview of StreamShift for Database Migrations on Google Cloud

Striim, a leader in real-time data integration, announced a preview release of StreamShift, a new service that helps enterprises migrate databases from on-premise to the cloud quickly and securely.


The new migration service includes automated database profiling, automated migration assessment, migration compatibility assessment, schema creation, transformation and data movement capabilities. Both lift-and-shift database migrations, and zero-downtime continuous online migrations are supported for similar or heterogeneous topologies. With this new service, enterprises can easily assess and migrate their on-premise Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL databases to their cloud counterparts. Though the preview service is first offered for Google Cloud, customers can also migrate to databases running in other clouds such as AWS and Azure.

“What’s different here is the simplicity and the intuitive user experience for database migrations offered in a hosted manner,” said Alok Pareek, EVP Products at Striim.  “Our cloud partners have been requesting such a hosted service to simplify cloud adoption for their endpoints, and we are delighted to offer database migrations as a service, built ground up with security, intelligence and scalability.  With StreamShift, customers can achieve a zero-downtime phased migration to ensure minimal business disruption and risk-free cutover to the cloud.”

“The ability to seamlessly and smoothly migrate data to the cloud is critical as organizations invest in cloud-first data and analytics strategies,” said Manvinder Singh, Director, Partnerships at Google Cloud. “Striim’s managed migration services on Google Cloud will provide customers with an automated, frictionless service for migrating their data from on-premises into Google Cloud, helping customers benefit from cloud capabilities in data management and analytics, as well as our global, secure infrastructure.”
