What it can do for your business

IBM Lift makes it easy to quickly, securely and reliably migrate your database from on-premises data centers to an IBM cloud data property. It enables secure and rapid migration to the cloud with zero downtime.

Migrate quickly to the cloud

By embedding IBM Aspera, Lift makes over-the-wire data transfer blazing fast. It allows you to begin migrating your applications much earlier than before.

Zero downtime migration

Lift captures incremental changes to your source database and replays them to your target database so applications using the source DB can run uninterrupted during database migration.
