We are pleased to announce that the AWS Schema Conversion Tool (SCT) has even tighter integration with AWS Database Migration Service. Once SCT has converted your database schema, for supported DMS source/target combinations, SCT can now create the appropriate endpoints in DMS. With the endpoints created, SCT then offers the ability generate the migration tasks necessary to move the data for the converted schema in DMS. The migration tasks can be monitored from SCT and re-run as required. This integration offers database engineers a convenient workspace to handle a migration from end-to-end. 

For relational database conversions, the engine has also been enhanced to offer even more automated conversions should you wish to switch from a commercial database to a cloud-native, open-source compatible solution. SCT now supports case sensitivity for SQL Server to PostgreSQL conversions, and for warehouse users moving to Redshift, there are new optimization rules to improve these conversions as well. 

For more information about AWS Schema Conversion Tool please visit the DMS homepage or review the SCT documentation website.

The latest version of the AWS Schema Conversion Tool for the development platform of your choice can always be downloaded from the following locations:  Windows, Mac, Fedora, and Ubuntu.
