Introducing the New Release of Cortex and Future Developments
So shortly before the end of 2023, we have released a new version (2023.3) of Cortex.
After the previous release, we have seen many new use cases come along which, as usual, have given us a lot of new inspiration to make Cortex perform better again.
In a nutshell, what have we done in this new release?
Besides PostgreSQL v12, v13, 14 and v15 Cortex now also supports migrations to PostgreSQL v16.
We’ve added new functionality to the user interface for the support of HSTORE and to manage Package Aliases. Looking at the migration of the Oracle Data Objects (DDL) and the Oracle Code Objects (DML) to PostgreSQL migration to HSTORE is implemented, and also a lot of other improvements. As a result, in many cases, the percentage of automated migration improved again.
Something we are proud of
As an interesting migration case from a client we had to migrate an Oracle database 2.000+ tables, 6.700+ table partitions and approx. 750.000 Lines of Code PL/SQL. Using our newest version of Cortex 99% of the Oracle Data Objects (DDL) were migrated to PostgreSQL correctly and nearly 85% of the Oracle Code Objects (DML) were migrated correctly to PostgreSQL.
Outlook for 2024
What’s on the agenda for 2024 looking at the development of Cortex?
Continuously improve Cortex’s capabilities based on customer use cases.
From an audit perspective we are going to improve/change the our reporting to be able to match in-depth which Oracle Data/Code object is migrated to which objects in PostgreSQL.
The Benefits of Cortex
Cortex is and will, due to our continuous improvements, stay the most effective and efficient solution to migrate your Oracle databases to PostgreSQL.
With Cortex you’ll save lots of time and money, and it’s cheaper than free. No lock-in’s and you can deploy your Oracle to PostgreSQL migrated databases wherever you want.
