Synchronize SQL Server to AWS

SQL Server to AWS

Continually export SQL Server data to AWS Aurora MySQL.

  • Great to consolidate/merge information on the cloud from multiple locations that use SQL Server databases, then build your own Data Warehouse and deliver Business Intelligence.
  • On top of AWS build web applications using data pulled from on-prem SQL Server.
  • Send data from AWS back to SQL Server.

MySQL to SQL Server

Recursive Sync

  • Use only to upload historic data. It optimizes upload by extracting and uploading one day at a time for a given date range.

  • Always use along with customData.json so you can configure the date field to use for each table.

  • NOTE: For daily sync, instead of using Recursive Sync, dynamically parse a date range into customData.json ==> Examples here.

  • More info about this feature see Recursive Synchronization


  • This allows to sync several on-premise databases to a single Aurora-MySQL database and differentiate them with tenant_id. Great for consolidation!

  • Activate and type a string to add a fixed column to every table that is synced.

  • This fixed column will be included in the PRIMARY KEY on Aurora-MySQL.

Tables to Sync

IMPORTANT: Tables and subsets of data to synchronize are specified in customData.json file ==> follow here.


Bipost Schedule

If you want automated execution of Bipost Sync, then set the Hour desired and click Schedule.

This will create a Windows Task that will run daily. If you want a different schedule, then open Windows Task Scheduler as follows.

Control Panel \ Administrative Tools:

Windows Administrative Tools

Windows Task Scheduler

If you manually create a task to run biPost then use argument: post

Windows Add Argument Task

Check for Updates

New versions of Bipost Sync can be checked using Help \ Check for Updates.

Bipost Check for Updates Menu

Bipost new version available

Sync multiple databases

If you are going to synchronize two or more databases from the same Windows host, create separate Bipost Sync folders for each database. Then customize each folder with the desired data set as explained here.

Use Cases

Many legacy and critical mission systems use Microsoft SQL Server.

Soft Restaurant and Intelisis ERP are examples of systems built with SQL Server. We have companies that use Bipost Sync + AWS to achieve sales & financial consolidation and enable cloud Business Intelligence with Google Data Studio.
