The MySQL Migration Toolkit supports a variety of source database systems, including the following:
Microsoft SQL Server
The MySQL Migration Toolkit is fully customizable through its Java runtime interface. Advanced users can use Java to perform custom data and schema transformations.
The MySQL Migration Toolkit supports agent-based data migrations, with the MySQL Migration Toolkit residing on a separate machine than the source and target database servers, through the use of a special migration agent. The agent-based data migration improves migration performance by allowing data to be transferred directly from the source machine to the target machine without being routed through the MySQL Migration Toolkit.
