  • Automates managed service for minimizing the setup and operations cost and effort.
  • Enables SMBs to leverages limitless storage and on-demand scalability.
  • RUs for throughput at either the container or database level for enhanced performance.

Azure Cosmos DB deploys a Cassandra connector that helps in a live migration of massive workload with zero application downtime. It further provides a seamless path to run Azure Cosmos DB. Vast Edge also integrates a replication agent to move data on the native Cassandra host and manage upload from Cassandra via a pipeline.

Blitzz Migration for Cassandra workload

Vast Edge deploys a Blitzz migration solution for hassle-free migration of Cassandra workload to Cosmos DB by leveraging a zero-downtime migration plan. It further includes features like:

  • Offers high-volume and parallel database replication. Sync the source and target platforms during the migration using Change-Data-Capture (CDC).
  • Automates migration of business logic data like tables and indexes. Also enables viewing without creating indexes manually.
  • Fault-tolerant and guarantees exactly-once delivery of data even during a hardware or software failure in the system.
  • Secures the data during transit using security methodologies like TLS, encryption and so on.

MongoDB migration to Cosmos DB

Vast Edge assists enterprises in migrating their MongoDB workload to Cosmos DB to leverage higher throughput, turn-key global distribution, elastic scaling and unlimited storage. The multi-tier database model of Cosmos DB and distributed DB apps provide a better user experience on both source and target databases for SMBs.

Offline and Online Migration

Vast Edge provisions for a simplifies data migration mechanism for Cosmos DB by orchestrating a fully managed hosting platform, migration monitoring options and automatic throttling handling. Difference between offline and online migration for MongoDB workload are:

Online Migration Offline Migration
Any transaction that occurs during migration gets updated to the new DB. Stop connections to the database during migration so the new transaction doesn't get updated.
No transactions are lost. Transactions lost happen.
Migration has less downtime. Faster migration.
Downtime begins with migration start. Downtime begins only at the end of the migration.
Can run the migration at a time when activity is typically low. Can run copying of the live system to investigate whether the downtime is acceptable or not.
