In the era of digital transformation, organizations are increasingly turning to cloud solutions for enhanced flexibility, security, and scalability. EPAM's migVisor stands out as a pioneering cloud migration assessment tool, specifically designed to analyze database environments and applications, creating a comprehensive visual roadmap for expediting their migration to the cloud.

migVisor goes beyond conventional assessment tools by evaluating Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL source databases to gauge migration complexities across major cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. Its advanced scoring mechanism assesses databases based on configuration, schema, business logic, and proprietary features. This evaluation not only identifies potential migration challenges but also offers tailored solutions to overcome them.

Notably, migVisor extends its assessment capabilities to applications, supporting languages such as Java and C#. This holistic approach enables a comprehensive analysis of the entire ecosystem for a seamless migration experience.

The tool dynamically compares source databases and applications for compatibility with a variety of cloud-native, DBaaS-based, and IaaS-based targets—including Cloud SQL, Aurora, RDS, and EC2. Through automation, migVisor streamlines database and application migration assessments, facilitating source database and application discovery. This enables organizations to identify the most suitable migration paths for their databases and applications, ensuring a smooth transition to the cloud.
