Curated Collection: Transporter


The Curated articles are guides, regularly updated by the Compose team, to the essential postings and help content available for each of the Compose databases. In addition, here we look at Transporter. The open-source tool the Compose team has put together to facilitate database migration.

About Transporter

Transporter is an open-source tool developed by the Compose team that moves data between databases, including databases of different types. Data is read from a Source database (or file), converted into a message format, and transformed into a format that can then be written to a Sink database (or file). This makes your data storage agnostic and much more portable.

Currently being developed an maintained, these articles reflect the current state and the history of Transporter.
