Release Radar: EDB Enhances Oracle Compatibility with DBMS_Scheduler Extension in BigAnimal

February 07, 2024

EDB is committed to assuring seamless Oracle-to-Postgres transitions for customers, and we recently added support for DBMS_Scheduler extension in our fully managed BigAnimal Postgres cloud database service to enhance these capabilities.

When deployed on the EDB Postgres Advanced Server running on BigAnimal, the DBMS_Scheduler extension is used for scheduling jobs at the OS level. The DBMS_Scheduler extension provides access to Oracle-like features that enable developers and operations staff to continue leveraging many existing PL/SQL development and operations skills.

BigAnimal eases lift-and-shift or Oracle-to-Postgres migrations, enabling you to move most database schemas and data in less than 20 days with unmatched Oracle compatibility. You can take advantage of EDB’s advanced migration tools and portal to migrate from Oracle without the risks of downtime or project failure.

Get started within minutes on BigAnimal—deploy on the cloud of your choice with $300 in free credits.
