We are pleased to announce a new release of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database Migration (DMS) to improve your user experience.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database Migration is a fully-managed service that provides a high performing, self-service experience for migrating databases to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). It provides logical online and offline migration for enterprise-level database migration with minimal downtime. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database Migration is based on industry-leading Oracle Zero Downtime Migration engine utilizing Oracle GoldenGate replication.

The new features include:

  • Support for non-autonomous databases as targets - you can now migrate data to OCI VM, Bare Metal, ExaCS, and DBCS databases
  • Graphical integration of Cloud Premigration Advisor (CPAT) results - View results and download the report right from the Console. CPAT performs analysis of the source database, looking for uses of database features and constructs that are problematic when migrating to one of Oracle's Autonomous Cloud offerings.
  • Include or exclude database objects from migration - Select database schemas, objects, or types to be included or excluded from your migration using regular expressions.
  • Error message display and Data Pump log download - Errors during validation and migration jobs are now displayed in detail as part of the job phase, and logs of Data Pump export and import processes can now be downloaded.
  • Consolidation of migration states - The Migration page displays one consolidated list of state names that indicate the resource's life cycle and functional migration states
