Migrate From MySQL to SQL Azure or SQL Server

Microsoft just announced the release of the first version of SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) for MySQL.

Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) is a toolkit that dramatically cuts the effort, cost, and risk of migrating from MySQL to SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2. SSMA 2008 for MySQL also supports migrating to SQL Azure.

SSMA for MySQL lets you quickly convert MySQL database schemas to SQL Server schemas, upload the resulting schemas into SQL Server, and migrate data from MySQL to SQL Server.

SSMA for MySQL supports migration from MySQL 4.1 and higher to any edition of SQL Server.

The latest SQL Server Migration Assistant is available for free download and preview here.

Some of the features included in this release are the ability to migrate:

  • Tables
  • Views
  • Stored procedures
