Migrating Data with gpcopy

Migrating Data with gpcopy

You can use the gpcopy utility to transfer data between databases in different Greenplum Database clusters.

gpcopy is a high-performance utility that can copy metadata and data from one Greenplum database to another Greenplum database. You can migrate the entire contents of a database, or just selected tables. The clusters can have different Greenplum Database versions. For example, you can use gpcopy to migrate data from Greenplum 5 to Greenplum 6.

Note: The gpcopy utility is available as a separate download for the commercial release of Pivotal Greenplum Database. See the Pivotal gpcopy Documentation.
