We have an OLD (3.49) on-prem internal Confluence install that uses Oracle for the database. We are considering migrating the data from it into a new Confluence instance. The new instance will probably run on EC2 in AWS. I'd like to use either MySQL or Postrgres with the new instance. What is the best way to move the legacy data?
The existing db is roughly 25 GB. I have seen the statement:
"Large data sets will require third party database migration tools."
Does a 20-30GB database count as a "Large Data Set"?
What 3rd party tools exist and which have the best track record.
We do have a lot of legacy plugins, but right now, we would probably accept some "breakage" to get things up to a modern state. Maybe we would be better served to export/import individual spaces...
Thank you for including details into what you’re wanting to do with Confluence. Your database size is not a massive amount of data. With this said, you should be able to perform the export/backup and restore that is referenced within the article you linked. There are a few things to consider when moving forward.
I hope this information proves helpful with migrating your data to a new instance and a new database.
We plan to migrate our Confluence instance from from Oracle to SQL Server (once we've upgraded to v7). Estimated size of our database is about twice of yours.
May I ask how the process of moving to a different database platform went. Did you use xml export/import to migrate? Any challenges on the way?
Hi @brad and Community!
We've just built the beta of a solution to help ease migrations from Server/Data-Center-on-prem to Data-Center-on-AWS-Quickstarts.
Would you be interested to join our beta program and try out this solution? If you're interested, or would like to find out more, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
the tool we have released is called "Jira Data Center Migration" for migration path from on-prem to AWS
Unfortunately, the tool does not help to do DB migration at the moment.
If you have a TAM or access to our technical support team. It will be a good idea to check with them for best practise for your case.
