How do I migrate to Event Store Cloud?

Steph Gill  |  08 June 2021

Event Store Cloud has been released, and you may be wondering how to migrate your existing EventStoreDB database to the cloud. Read on to find out the ways in which we can help.

Migrating a database in any circumstances can be a complicated process, as it has to be unique to your set up and go through many stages. It's a significant project, requiring assessment, planning, proof of concept, review, migration, and finally validation. That's if the process goes correctly with no changes in requirements during the process. 

The Engineers and Developer Advocates here at Event Store understand how complex this process is, as they've all done it before. We want to share that expertise with you as you plan and execute your migration to Event Store Cloud.

Migration patterns


In order to make the migration process as painless as possible, we’ve created a Replicator tool that can perform a live migration with no downtime and can be used for a variety of migration scenarios. You can use this to streamline the process, or even fully migrate a database that's less than 100GB.   

Where size, uptime, or throughput create challenges for an online migration approach, we have a number of other bespoke options available. Our Engineers are happy to discuss these with you and help create a plan to provide a reliable migration path.

Many of our clients have already migrated to Event Store Cloud and are enjoying the benefits of our optimised, production ready, and multi-cloud EventStoreDB platform.
