Without further details it would be very difficult to give you valuable answers. It would be very good if you could elaborate a bit more about your current scenario.

Having said all that, here are some general advices:

* There's an old MySQL Migration Toolkit ( to help you migrate from other RDBMSes into MySQL. It could be a starting point. I would advise you to be cautious with its use (or with the use of any automatic migration tool).

* There's a white paper called "A Practical Guide to Migrating From Microsoft SQL Server to MySQL" ( that should cover the key areas of the migration process.

* You can take advantage of high level scripting languages like Python to achieve data verification and other scriptable tasks/tests.

* Keep an eye on the MySQL Utilities (shipped with MySQL Workbench). Here you can find more information:

Hope this helps.
