Accelerate your business. Leave Oracle behind.

BigAnimal is the only cloud Postgres with built-in compatibility with Oracle databases on AWS and Azure.

Oracle Migration

Migrate quickly from Oracle to Postgres on AWS or Azure

With EDB's fully managed Postgres service, BigAnimal, you can break free from Oracle and achieve your technical and business goals—faster.

Minimize migration risk by using EDB's Migration Portal and Migration Toolkit. No need to rewrite Oracle applications.

Migration Portal

Compatibility with Oracle

Keep your code

Compatibility with Oracle is built into BigAnimal.

There's no need to make changes to your Oracle applications because EDB's Advanced Server interprets, translates, and natively mimics Oracle drivers, Oracle code, and Oracle queries. Keep your code. Advance your business.

Deploy anywhere hassle-free

With EDB's license portability, you're in control of where you deploy your database workloads: on premises, managed, self-managed, or BigAnimal. Cost is completely transparent.

No license audits, no unexplained cost increases, no funny business.
