Cortex. Migrate your Oracle databases to PostgreSQL with ease

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

In fact, migrating the business logic and combining this with all its dependencies between the Data and Code Objects makes Cortex unique. On average, Cortex is able to automatically migrate at least 80% of all the Oracle Code Objects to native PostgreSQL.

Because we believe in database freedom, we always migrate Oracle databases to native PostgreSQL to avoid any vendor lock-in and to deliver maximum freedom of deployment on-premise and/or in the Cloud. Let us convince you!

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 Oracle footprint

When Cortex is finished, Oracle isn’t just gone – it’s entirely gone and Cortex also. 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.

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.”

FAQs about Cortex migrations

Can I deploy my PostgreSQL migrated database in the Cloud?

The simple answer is, yes, you can. There are no restrictions about how you deploy PostgreSQL, this is the core benefit of Open Source. There are many cloud providers who offer the community version of PostgreSQL.

Can every Oracle database be migrated to PostgreSQL?

Cortex can only be used on Oracle databases where your organisation owns the intellectual property. With this in mind, it’s safe to say that 98% of Oracle databases around the world can easily be migrated to PostgreSQL using Cortex.

What expertise do I need to perform a migration?

Cortex makes everything very simple, performing almost all the migration automatically. However, after the migration, there will always be things that need to be adjusted manually and you’ll need the necessary expertise to achieve this.

Is Cortex free?

Cortex is a licensed product that allows you to perform Oracle to PostgreSQL migrations yourself. The license price will be based on the number of Oracle databases you are going to migrate – but as a rough guide, based on that number the average price per database migration is less than €2.000 – regardless of complexity. Comparatively small when you consider Oracle license/maintenance costs and Oracle audits.

Is Cortex easy to use?

Yes, very easy. However, Cortex is specialist software, so you will need knowledge of both Oracle and PostgreSQL. In addition to this, you’ll be able to attend a one-day Splendid Data workshop that will give you the base knowledge you need to start using Cortex. As well as  access to our specialized consultants, there is also a Cortex user manual and a cookbook for any manual adjustments you might need to make.
