OUR History

DB Best was founded in 2002 with the sole purpose of helping organizations migrate their various database solutions like Oracle 8 to Microsoft SQL Server. The technology that we developed was acquired by Microsoft in 2005 and became the foundation for the SQL Server Migration Assistant.

In 2007, our founders Dmitry and Irena Balin took their product development experience and relaunched DB Best to grow the business through creating web, mobile, and enterprise solutions for customers. This was mostly the result of database migrations projects requiring a deep expertise in not only the target database but also the source database. Likewise, we had developed expertise in application platforms like Java and .NET so that we could ensure that our customers’ applications run better in the new targeted environment.

We soon realized that once the system is in production, you need to keep it running with proactive monitoring and maintenance activities. So, we launched our Operational Data Management service to provide long-term support for your solutions with our managed service offer. This way you can spend more time innovating and have us keep the lights on for your IT operations.

Along the way, we developed our Migrator series of products to improve the transfer of Oracle, IBM, and MySQL data to SQL Server. Since migration projects take time, we developed the Database Compare Suite to look at schema and data to detect apply any schema changes and data changes that may have occurred in the production system.

In 2015, we extended our offerings to include Amazon Web Services and developed unique expertise with the Database Migration Service and Schema Conversion Tool for migrating on-premises workloads to AWS. Since then, we are now a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) partner and applying what we know from running and deploying production workloads on Azure and AWS.

What makes DB Best unique over other technology consulting companies is our unique blend of:

  • people that make up DB Best;
  • products that we developed to support our projects, and
  • processes we’ve built up over time for managing data and applications anywhere.
