The MySQL Engineering team is proud to announce the Data Import feature in MySQL Database Service (MDS) and HeatWave.
The new Data Import enables faster and easier migrations to the MySQL Database Service. You can migrate from virtually any MySQL source, like AWS RDS/Aurora or MySQL on-premise, and from different versions, including 8.0, 5.7, or 5.6, directly to MySQL Database Service.
To migrate your existing MySQL databases, you perform two easy steps, in sequence or in parallel:
Together with MySQL Shell, MDS Data Import functionality dramatically reduces the time and complexity of migrations.
MySQL Shell for the data dump
MDS built-in Data Import
The best part of all is that you don’t need to think about it. MySQL Database Service handles the complexity for you.
To get started, we recommend importing an existing MySQL database into the MySQL Database Service. We also recommend trying HeatWave for 400x query acceleration for MySQL.
You can go to oracle.com/cloud/free and create your free account in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Check the documentation for quick steps to create your first MySQL DB System with HeatWave and importing and exporting data.
