I'm wondering about the best way to transfer the content (text and graphic files) of an SQL 7.0 database (running on NT Server) into a MySQL database running on Debian GNU/Linux. A related question is how to best migrate ASP pages to a Debian (or other version) Linux platform. Your guidance is greatly appreciated. —Carl Lawson, email@example.com
First off, moving one database to another is not a trivial task. It's like porting a program from one platform to another, there are implementation-specific issues to consider. For example, MySQL does not support some SQL features that Microsoft SQL Server does. The easiest way to port this would be to dump the contents of the SQL Server database to a text file, re-create the tables in MySQL and then use the mysqlimport command to read the data into your new database. Another option would be to move the data programmatically, using Perl or Java with ODBC. This would allow you to validate or manipulate the data before inserting it. As for ASP, install Apache with mod_perl support and then install the ASP module.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
