Accelerate your migration to SQL Server 2012
Get a complete network-wide inventory of SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, and Sybase instances, edition identification, and hardware assessment, when you use MAP as part of a comprehensive process for planning and migrating legacy database instances to SQL Server 2012. The wide-ranging details of databases and server instances MAP provides is information that you can use to consolidate databases and better utilize hardware and database resources.
With MAP you get the following reports and proposals for migration to SQL Server 2012:
- Discovery and inventory: Database inventory and reporting of SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle instances on Itanium-based servers, Sybase instances, and Oracle schemas in your organization.
- SQL Server licensing: The MAP Toolkit will provide you with the details to determine licensing requirements for the upcoming release of SQL Server 2012 and the changes to the SQL Server licensing option. For details, please download the
Calculating License Requirements for SQL Server 2012 whitepaper.
- Detailed reporting: Covers specific SQL Server instances that include component name, version, edition, and more. Includes wide-ranging details of databases and server instances that can be used for consolidation. Oracle schema reporting identifies the size and use of each schema, estimates of the complexity of migration and suggests candidates for migration to SQL Server. This information can be used to determine the total cost of ownership in maintaining Oracle and the potential ROI from switching to SQL Server.
- Hardware and platform details: Details for computers that are running heterogeneous database instances, including determining whether the machines are virtual or physical.
- Identification and evaluation: Determines which database deployments are suitable for migration to SQL Server 2012, based on hardware and platform requirements and identify potential ROI.
