Migration Methodology: The DSP-Explorer Difference

Our motto is ‘Any Database | Any Cloud’ and whatever the nature of the migration, we have a long history of making it a smooth and successful journey. We have a range of vendor accreditations and are the only Oracle and Microsoft CSP in the UK. But it’s how we do things that really makes us stand out:


We understand that migrations are a significant undertaking and as much a commercial decision as a technical one. That’s why we work with you in close collaboration, putting a significant amount of effort into pre-migration preparation. We bring all stakeholders together to assess every available model and decide which one is the strategic best-fit for your organisation.


Your migration is unique to you, but because of our wealth of migration experience, we have a tried and tested formula to make the process run smoothly. We’ll work in close partnership with your teams throughout the process to ensure that downtime is reduced to the absolute minimum and your estate is fully optimised with the highest levels of performance possible.


We don’t see the migration process as transactional, as many other partners do. We offer a complete wrap-around service to optimise your estate in the long-term with services like proactive monitoring, regular health checks and performance reviews. This means you can focus on other priority areas of the business, assured in the knowledge that your infrastructure is safe with us.

Why MySQL Enterprise Edition

It may come as a surprise that some of the world’s largest companies (Adobe, Google and Facebook) use MySQL Enterprise Edition (EE) as their database of choice to run mission-critical applications. However contrary to popular belief, MySQL Enterprise Edition can deliver better performance, security and scalability than some of the top proprietary database providers.  In addition to this, MySQL Enterprise Edition is a low cost option in delivering DR, HA and database monitoring – all of which come included in the yearly subscription.

One of the biggest surprises our customers find when it comes to MySQL Enterprise Edition is the low cost of licensing. Going direct to MySQL price per database is $5,000 or approx. £3,776 per year.
