Zebanza's Lunch and Learn event recap

Thank you for attending our technical lunch and learn session on database migration. In case you missed it, here’s a recap along with some pictures. And don’t forget, if you need migration advice, contact Zebanza. We’ll assist you throughout the process.

Are you ready to make the PostgreSQL move?

Migrating from a legacy to an open-source database can be challenging, but with our expertise and EDB’s migration tools, we guarantee success.

Here are some benefits of migrating to an open-source database:

  • Cost Saving: Open-source databases are free to use and distribute, reducing operational expenses and enabling better budget allocation.
  • Licensing Freedom: Open-source databases provide flexibility under open-source licenses or subscriptions, allowing customization and distribution without limitations.
  • Community Support: Active communities offer extensive online resources, forums, and user communities for assistance, knowledge sharing, and collaborative problem-solving.
  • Flexibility and Scalability: Open-source databases can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments, offering flexibility and scalability to match organizational needs.
  • Wide Range of Features: Open-source databases offer advanced functionalities like replication, high availability, clustering, data partitioning, and full-text search, suitable for various applications and use cases.
  • Security and Reliability: Open-source databases undergo rigorous community testing, ensuring security and reliability. Source code review facilitates transparency and independent security audits.
  • Avoid Vendor Lock-in: Migrating to an open-source database reduces dependence on a single vendor, providing more control over infrastructure and freedom to choose optimal solutions.

It’s important to note that while open-source databases offer numerous benefits, each migration project should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Factors such as the complexity of the existing database, specific application requirements, and available technical expertise should be considered before making a decision. That’s why having an experienced partner with the necessary database expertise is crucial. We can assist you throughout the process. Contact us for all the information you need to ensure a successful database migration.


Zebanza has partnered with EnterpriseDB because they offer migration tools that ensure a faster, safer, and smoother migration journey. EDB provides the strongest end-to-end migration solution with EDB Postgres Advanced Server (EPAS) and a comprehensive set of migration connectors and tools, making migrations easier, predictable, and risk-free. Customers who migrate from commercial databases aim to reduce time to market by moving their applications to PostgreSQL. They also require enterprise-class features such as enhanced security, resource management, and tools.


Migrating legacy databases to EDB Postgres Advanced Server (EPAS) brings cost reduction, mitigates vendor lock-in risks, and promotes an open-source strategy with PostgreSQL. The combination of EDB products and Zebanza services simplifies the migration from a commercial database to an enterprise-grade DBMS built on top of open-source PostgreSQL.


We will soon share the presentation used during the lunch and learn, as well as part of the migration demo. So keep an eye on our website.
