How to convert Oracle to Greenplum

Full Convert is designed for ease of use and reliability to make sure you get your job done as quickly and as simply as possible.

Making migration easy for you

Full Convert is a fully self-tuning software. Your migration will work as expected without you needing to adjust anything.

Data types are different in Greenplum compared to the source Oracle. We automatically adjust them as we copy the tables so you don't have to worry about it. You can adjust the mapping rules if you wish to change the following defaults:

  • binary_double double precision
  • binary_float real
  • blob bytea
  • char text (if precision > 10485760)
  • clob text
  • date timestamp
  • float real
  • interval day to second interval
  • interval year to month interval
  • long text
  • long raw bytea
  • nchar char (if precision <= 10485760)
  • nchar text (if precision > 10485760)
  • nclob text
  • number decimal
  • nvarchar2 varchar (if precision <= 10485760)
  • nvarchar2 text (if precision > 10485760)
  • raw bytea
  • rowid char(16)
  • sdo_geometry geometry (if spatial_supported is true)
  • sdo_geometry text (if spatial_supported is false)
  • urowid char(16)
  • varchar2 varchar
  • xmltype xml

Full Convert migration in 4 easy steps

Oracle connection

Connection to Oracle

We will choose Oracle from the source database engines list. We can connect to our Oracle in two ways. If we have Oracle Client installed, simply typing the service name and specifying login info is all we need.

However, when you don't want to install 100MB+ of OCI installation, we have a nice surprise! We can connect to Oracle using a direct TCP/IP connection. No OCI required. In addition to database name and login info, we would just need to specify server name or IP - and done.


Connection to Greenplum

We will select Greenplum from the drop down and fill out the connection parameters.

Greenplum connection

Start the conversion

All source tables are selected for conversion by default. In case you only need some tables, simply deselect the ones you don't need - or deselect all, then select just the tables you do need. Click the Copy your database button to get started.



Conversion is highly-optimized to run as fast as possible, yet provides top-notch reliability. Huge tables are converted in small chunks at a time, preserving memory and ensuring that your computer stays fast and responsive.
