Easy as “Save As → Cloud”

IBM Bluemix Lift

IBM Bluemix Lift makes it easy to quickly, securely and reliably migrate your database from your on-premises data center to an IBM Bluemix cloud data property. It takes the complexity out of ground-to-cloud database migrations. Simply specify your source database and which cloud database you would like to migrate to. Bluemix Lift takes care of the rest.
