Once data is in a database, it stays there forever, right? Think again! In today's fast-paced environments, your traditional SQL deployment might become too constrained and you’ll need to move the data to a more scalable NoSQL solution. Or you might want to move data to a different region, a different cloud, or even different versions of the same product. That means data migration! But transferring large swaths of data between databases is not easy. And migrating data is a challenge, especially if your infrastructure must keep working without downtime.
Watch this webinar to hear Dan Yasny, Field Engineer at ScyllaDB, discuss strategies commonly used for migrating data to and from a Cassandra or Scylla cluster. When can you just copy the existing files? When do you have to read the data from a source and write to the destination? What are the caveats?
You will learn:
- How to use the Scylla Migrator — a Spark tool that can efficiently move data between Cassandra and Scylla clusters
- When you can just copy the existing files around, and how to do it
- Other migration strategies are and when to use them
