“It’s not you; it’s me”—we’ve all heard it at the end of a relationship. It always sounds like a trite excuse.

But when it comes to leaving legacy databases behind, innovative enterprises are increasingly realizing: It isn’t me. It’s Oracle. And the relief this revelation brings them, is allowing them to leave the restrictions of their previous database behind, to take their business to the next level.

Sure, a database breakup can be difficult—especially if it’s with a DBMS you’ve been familiar with for years—but it can also be necessary. If you aspire to build truly modern apps, to execute complex digital transformation initiatives or to scale and grow on your terms without the fear of prohibitive fees and limiting licensing, then it might be time to part ways with your Oracle database.

That’s why EDB hosted our recent webinar “It’s Not You, It’s Oracle. Leave them for Postgres,” which you can watch on-demand on our website, right now.

Over the course of a wide-ranging discussion, EDB Senior Product Manager, Matt Lewandowski and EDB Field CTO, Financial Services, Julian Moffett explore the anxieties that hold organizations back from migration, the challenges that can occur during migration, and the ultimate benefits that making the Postgres move can yield, including:

  • Optimized database performance and durability
  • True high availability—including replication, write-ahead logging and point-in-time recovery
  • Deployment flexibility
  • Unmatched agility
  • Continual optimization through new feature releases and training opportunities
  • A Postgres database everywhere—public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud


Oracle-to-Postgres migration has never been easier

As our speakers discuss, all of this is well within your reach, especially with EDB migration tools and Oracle compatibility. This ensures you can transfer your existing architecture with ease—all of your schema, data, code and operational tools.

Oracle compatibility saves your team both time and money during the database migration process, guaranteeing that you don’t have to rebuild your infrastructure from scratch or risk losing vital components of the applications that drive your business-critical initiatives.

Yes: breaking up with your current DBMS is hard. But, with the right database partner and the power of Postgres, it won’t be long before you realize that your legacy environment was just limiting your potential. It wasn’t you—it was Oracle.
