Upgrades are a necessary part of any technology system, but they are also one of the riskiest maintenance procedures. They can introduce new bugs, performance issues, and cause unexpected downtime.

Pythian’s database experts perform hundreds of upgrades every year. We know how to plan, perform deep testing, and rehearse migrations to make sure there are no surprises when it comes time to upgrade.

We track performance and stability issues before and after upgrades and migrations to gauge any changes that need to be addressed. And we have an entire arsenal of advanced techniques to minimize risk. If your business requires a zero-downtime migration, Pythian can do it.
