Migrate SQL Server to PostgreSQL
SQL Server to PostgreSQL Migration with Change Data Capture (CDC)
SQL Server to Postgres replication is real-time and automated with BryteFlow. Move your data from SQL Server to Postgres with automated Change Data Capture in real-time and sync data continually with every change at source. Our Postgres replication tool exports data from on-premise SQL Server sources and Cloud SQL platforms to Postgres. There is no coding for any process including extraction, SCD type2, masking, or DDL. BryteFlow enables migration and ingestion from all versions of SQL Server to Postgres.

SQL Server to Postgres
CDC Replication without Coding
SQL Server to PostgreSQL migration tool has very high throughput and supports large datasets easily
Moving large volumes of SQL Server data to Postgres with BryteFlow is easy. BryteFlow XL Ingest manages the initial full refresh of SQL Server data to Postgres with parallel multi-threaded loading, automated partitioning and compression. This is followed by loading of incremental data (deltas) by BryteFlow Ingest using Change Data Capture (CDC) to update data with changes at source.
SQL Server CDC for real-time SQL Server Replication
BryteFlow offers options for SQL Server CDC to PostgreSQL
BryteFlow uses Change Data Capture for SQL Server to Postgres replication and offers a variety of CDC methods for real-time replication such as SQL Server Change Tracking, CDC with timestamps, SQL Server Change Data Capture and Log Shipping.
Our Change Data Capture is zero impact and efficient, updating the Postgres data warehouse in real-time or at a frequency selected by you. All changes including inserts, updates and deletes are merged automatically with existing data.
Change Data Capture and how to make CDC Automation Easy
No-Code SQL Server to PostgreSQL Migration Tool
Almost every SQL Server to PostgreSQL migration tool has coding involved at some point. However BryteFlow has absolutely no coding involved in any process, for e.g. extracting data, SQL Server CDC, data merges, SCD Type2 history, and data reconciliation are all automated and self-service with a point and click interface that any business user can use easily.
SQL Server vs Postgres – A Step-by-Step Migration Journey
SQL Server to PostgreSQL migration is monitored for data completeness from start to finish
BryteFlow provides end-to-end monitoring of data. Unlike other software which load your data without attention to data completeness, BryteFlow makes it a point to track your data. For e.g. if you are replicating SQL Server data to Postgres at 4pm on Monday, June 6, 2022, all the changes at source will be replicated to the Postgres database, latest change last so the data will be replicated with all inserts, deletes and changes present at source. The changes are merged automatically with existing data.
Data Pipelines, ETL Pipelines and 6 reasons to automate them
Data from MSSQL to Postgres maintains Referential Integrity
BryteFlow maintains the referential integrity of your data when replicating SQL Server to Postgres. This means that when there are changes in the SQL Server source and when those changes are replicated to the Postgres destination you can pinpoint the changes- the date, the time and the values that changed at the columnar level.
Data Replication from Postgres
Data is continually and automatically reconciled in the Postgres cloud data warehouse
BryteFlow automatically reconciles data in the Postgres data warehouse against data in the SQL Server database continually or at a specified frequency. It performs point-in-time data completeness checks for complete datasets including type-2. It compares row counts and columns checksum at a very granular level.
BryteFlow TruData, our Data Reconciliation Tool
Archive data while preserving SCD Type 2 history
BryteFlow provides time-stamped data and the versioning feature enables you to access data from any point on the timeline. This versioning feature is integral to historical and predictive trend analysis.
BryteFlow Ingest, our Replication Tool
How much time will your Database Administrators need to spend on managing the replication?
You don’t need much of your DBA’s time to manage a BryteFlow implementation. Unlike other replication software where DBAs may be needed to manage backups, manage dependencies until changes have been processed, configure full backups etc. BryteFlow is automated and needs minimal involvement from your DBA. Also you do not need sysadmin privileges for the replication user. With BryteFlow, it is “set and forget”, leading to a much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) .
Data Integration on PostgreSQL
Automatic catch-up from network dropout
BryteFlow has built-in resiliency. In case of a power outage or network failure you will not need to start the SQL Server to Postgres replication process over again. You can simply pick up where you left off – automatically.

About Microsoft SQL Server
Microsoft SQL Server is a software that is a relational database management system owned by Microsoft. It’s primary objective is to store data and then retrieve it when other applications request it. It supports a huge range of applications including transaction processing, analytics and business intelligence. SQL Server is a database server that implements SQL (Structured Query Language) and there are many versions of SQL Server, engineered for different workloads and demands.
PostgeSQL is an open source, enterprise-grade, relational database management system based on SQL. It extends SQL to cover and scale complex data workloads. Postgres is known for its versatility, extensibility, reliability and data integrity, not to mention its amazing features. It can be run on all prominent operating systems and is ACID-compliant. Postgres innovative add-ons include the useful PostGIS geospatial database extender. Postgres enables users to define their own data types and create custom functions.
