UB Data Migration Pro v3.0.9

Over the past two years of building the UB Data Migration Pro, we’ve evolved the extension’s functionalities and performance optimization. And we’ll constantly be improving our migration tool to ensure an even better Magento 2 data migration solution for you.

Today, let’s go through our new critical update -- UB Data Migration Pro version 3.0.9, with additional simple yet incredibly powerful features you should keep an eye out for.

Enhanced delta migration -- Both newly created & changed data in sync

The delta migration is used in the last stage of the data migration process to move data that was created or changed after the first migration from your Magento 1 database to Magento 2.

As you might notice, migrating delta data has been introduced since our major upgrade in UB Data Migration Pro v3.0.0. However, it just covers new data created on the Magento 1 site during your data migration process. That means changes to existing data on your current Magento 1 database are not applied and ported to Magento 2.

UB Data Migration Pro v3.0.9

UB Data Migration Pro v3.0.9 -- Enhanced delta migration functionality

With the new improvement in version 3.0.9, UB Data Migration Pro keeps both ‘created’ and ‘changed’ data in sync. Then, you can have an exact copy of the latest Magento 1 database at a specific point in time. Not only does this greatly minimize the manual workaround, but it also ensures data integrity, one of the essential factor for any data migration project. How convenient it is! Continue reading

UB Data Migration Pro

Sept 15, 2017 Update
UB Data Migration Pro version 3.1.0 has just been released -- here, with an absolutely refreshed Dashboard UI. Fully compatible with Magento 2.1.9. It supports Command-line Interface (CLI) which allows you to proceed migration steps using the command lines in CLI mode, after completing all pre-migration setting steps.

After months of hard work, UB Data Migration Pro v3.0 (V3) is now a reality. I am excited to announce that the version 3 (V3) is a complete overhaul compared to its older sibling.

The new V3 provokes familiar questions:

  • Can I migrate Magento 1 data into an existing Magento 2 database?
  • I have new customers, order and inventory changes during the development time, can I transfer such new data from Magento 1 site without re-migration from the scratch?
  • Is it possible to migrate only specific data portions?

The short answer: YES. Even better, the V3 makes life easier for large-scale data migration, with one of the most striking new features -- Delta migration.
