UB Data Migration Pro

Dec 13, 2017 Update
UB Data Migration Pro version 3.1.2 has just been released -- here, with an absolutely refreshed Dashboard UI. Fully compatible with Magento 2.2.2. 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.

Case Study - Magento 2 Data Migration

*** Feb 8, 2017 Note: We did work with Radford on the staging Winetasting.com server during the data migration process. At present this domain has been changed to a new one (confidential).  

Today we have a good chance to interview Radford Castro -- Lead Developer at Winetasting.com. He’s responsible for the day-to-day duties that are related to the web aspect of the business and working on migrating from an older platform to Magento 2.x.

Back to May 2016, Radford approached our team at Ubertheme for the custom data migration inquiry. And until July, after Winetasting.com got things ready for the data migration project, Radford and our team moved forward with migrating 382,047 customer entities from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

Even though the project narrows down to migrating customer entity only, this case study gives you an idea of why Winetasting.com decided to start with Magento 2 and how they got the data migration ready to take advantage of this new platform.

Thanks to Radford for sitting down with us to share about your Winetasting.com data migration project.

Migrate Customer Data in Magento 2

Sept 13, 2016 Update: We had chance to interview Radford Castro — Lead Developer at Winetasting.com about the custom data migration project that I referred to below. Here is the details of the interview

Our team had a chance to work on a custom migration project two weeks ago that a client needed our help to port only Customer data (382,047 records) to Magento 2.

This is an interesting Magento 2 migration task indeed.

Customer data is always of great importance to any Magento store and it’s a must-have item to be migrated. Let’s take this chance to have a closer look into significant perspectives related to migrating Customer data in Magento.

Migrate Customer Data in Magento 2

Insider Information: Migrate Customers Data to Magento 2

You might have a few questions in mind before migration:

  • Does it require your customers to change their password after migration?
  • What are the changes in the (Magento 1) Customer’s table structure, compared to Magento 2?
  • For a Magento store with big customer data, how to flexibly migrate such data portion?

As you can see, when coming to particular Magento’s database migration, beside Customer, it involves in different components -- Websites, stores, store views; Attribute sets, attribute groups, attributes; Categories; Products; Sales data; Product reviews, Rating data; Other data like tax rules etc. If you wish to have a quick overview into these data portions, this infographic will help -- Key changes in Magento 1 vs Magento 2 database structure.

For now, let’s dive in the Customer data in Magento 2. Continue reading

Infographic Magento 1 vs Magento 2 Database

Starting from the early 2015 when our development team was working on the first instance of UB Data Migration tool, we had chance to dive in and explore Magento 2, especially the differences between Magento 1 and Magento 2 database. And we see there are a significant number of changes in the database structure that are worth highlighting.

It took us pretty much of time to update the changes in accordance with Magento 2 development process. However it’s beneficial to our internal product development indeed. And we think this would also be good to anyone new to Magento 2 who wants to become familiar with the key changes in Magento 2. So we end up with the idea to create an infographic that puts those findings together.

The infographic is formatted to give a quick overview of key changes in Magento 2 database structures, compared to Magento 1. Please note the comparison is for quick reference rather than detailing every aspect of the database. Continue reading

UB Data Migration Pro

Dec 13, 2017 Update: UB Data Migration Pro version 3.1.2 has just been released -- here, with an absolutely brand new Dashboard UI. Fully compatible with Magento 2.2.2. It supports delta migration, PHP Memcached and fully ready for large-scale data migration.

Moving your store to Magento 2 to take full advantage of it’s new design is now possible for many shop owners. It’s clear to see a lot of improvements in the whole new Magento 2 structure, but there is one big disadvantage. The difference between Magento 1 and 2 architecture is huge, which means that data isn’t easily transferable; how will you do it if you want to upgrade your Magento 1 shop to a Magento 2 shop?

Since early 2015, we at Ubertheme have worked on, and continually improved, a free UB Data Migration tool that migrates the data from Magento 1’s database to the Magento 2’s; using the right structure for Magento 2’s new database architecture.

Long story short, we transfer the data for you without the errors that are typical when there are such sweeping changes in software architecture.

This free tool has helped to ease the migration process for thousands of people across the world already. However, to provide a better, stable and more feature-rich solution for Magento 2 migration, our team decided to upgrade to a premium migration tool — UB Data Migration Pro that gives us the chance to maintain an active update, patches and bug fixes.

Now, let’s see how UB Data Migration can help and will be a good fit for your migration project’s needs. Continue reading
