Cortex. Migrate your Oracle databases to PostgreSQL with ease!

Cortex is the most sophisticated product in the market for highly automated migrations of your Oracle databases to native PostgreSQL.

The benefits of automatic migration are:

  • Effectiveness. The more Oracle Data and Code Objects can be migrated automatically to native PostgreSQL the better. It saves time and money, lowers the risk and it’s the only way to accelerate your Oracle to PostgreSQL migration workloads.
  • Efficiency. Higher productivity with far less resources.
  • Quality. The code produced by automated tools is by definition better than that produced manually. The Oracle Data and Code objects have many interdependencies. To migrate all these dependencies manually is almost impossible (apart from the time it will take). It is better to have this done automatically.

We have performed a comparison between Ora2Pg and Cortex. Curious about the results? Read our blog Ora2Pg is free. But Cortex is cheaper. How?

Cortex always migrate Oracle databases to native PostgreSQL to avoid any vendor lock-in and to give you the maximum freedom to deploy on-premise and/or in the cloud.

Features & Benefits

Cortex uses semantic translations

Cortex takes a highly advanced approach to migration. Rather than a syntactic line-by-line translation, Cortex performs a cutting-edge context semantic translation and takes care of all dependencies between Data Objects (DDL) and Code Objects (DML – PL/SQL). This delivers the sharpest, cleanest and most correct translation of Oracle (PL/SQL) into PostgreSQL (PL/pgSQL).

Cortex is repeatable and consistent

Cortex is a container-based solution. When any assessment and/or migration is run, a separate runtime container is created. Inside this will be all the necessary processes needed, standardising every single assessment or migration. Whether that’s for one database, or thousands, Cortex is repeatable and reliable.

Cortex leaves no footprint

The end result of a migration using Cortex is 100% native PostgreSQL without any constraints or the use of a proprietary compatibility layer. This makes it possible for you to run it on the community version of PostgreSQL so there’s no form of vendor lock-in whatsoever. You have total freedom to decide how the end result is deployed in production.

Who’s it for?

Organisations with Oracle databases

Cortex is a licensed product (pay-per-use) that allows you to perform the migration of Oracle databases yourself. The license price is based on the number of Oracle databases and the complexity of each Oracle database you want to migrate. Cortex already proved to be the most efficient and effective product for automatically migrating Oracle databases (DDL and DML) to native PostgreSQL, to avoid any vendor lock-in and to give you the maximum freedom to deploy on-premise and/or in the cloud. It’s cheaper than free!

Global, regional or local System Integrators

Cortex is a licensed product and the price is related to the number of Oracle databases you want to migrate for your client(s). As a System Integrator, Cortex delivers you the opportunity to provide a service for your clients to migrate Oracle databases to PostgreSQL in the most efficient and effective way possible and thus deliver more speed and greater value.

Companies with just a few Oracle databases

If you only have a limited number of Oracle databases, we also offer Migration Assessments and Migrations as a service.

A look at migrating from Oracle to PostgreSQL

We’ve helped companies like yours

“Splendid Data has done us a great service by migrating our Oracle database, part of our online hotel distribution solution, to PostgreSQL using Cortex including all data with zero downtime at cutover and a data synch back to Oracle assuring us a fallback for a defined period of time. From that moment on, we were relieved of Oracle’s high prices and licensing restrictions regarding deployment in a cloud environment like Microsoft Azure.”

Markus Maissen
CEO, Reconline AG

“Splendid Data has been of great service to us to migrate our extensive and complex Oracle database part of our standard Coswin Asset Management solution, to native PostgreSQL using Cortex. Coswin is used at more than 1,700 customer sites and tens of thousands of users in different industries worldwide.”
