Challenges In Database Upgrade
A database upgrade is usually a source of inconvenience for any organization. It can lead to an increase in downtime, compatibility issues, and functional modifications. Nevertheless, it still needs to be done.
Typically, we see enterprises having a difficult time when working alone to upgrade their databases. Their main points of struggle are:
- Estimating The Cost Of Upgrading – Attempting to produce a financial model to predict the cost of upgrading your database servers is next to impossible if you don’t have data on your current database landscape. This prevents comparison between the present state and the future state solutions. Not knowing where the changes lay makes it tricky to succeed in predicting the cost of the upgrade.
- Identifying Applications Not Requiring Any Change – Despite the need for a database upgrade, some applications will not be affected. These applications will support the newer and more current versions of the database engine. Yet, the problem is felt in identifying these applications that will not require any modifications.
- Keeping The Downtime Minimal – Usually, enterprises have multiple databases, and this is a common practice. The problem comes when multiple databases have to be upgraded. To reduce downtime, one will have to automate the deployment of the present production server to the updated server.
