How to Migrate On-Premise Oracle Database onto AWS RDS Microsoft SQL Server


This article will demonstrate step by step how to migrate on-premise Oracle database onto AWS RDS SQL Server, the issues encountered plus their solutions and workarounds during the migration.

The following environment and tools will be involved in this activity:

  • Oracle Database 19c
  • SQL Server 2019
  • AWS RDS SQL Server 2019
  • Oracle Client 19c
  • AWS Database Migration Service ( DMS) or AWS S3
  • SQL Server Management Studio ( SSMS )
  • Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) for Oracle

There is no direct migration on-premise Oracle database onto AWS SQL Server RDS, so the the high level migration procedure will be:

  1. Migrate on-premise Oracle database by using SSMA to on-premise SQL Server database.
  2. Migrate on-premise SQL Server database onto AWS RDS SQL Server.
