Migrating Data with gpcopy
You can use the
gpcopy utility to transfer data between databases in different Greenplum Database clusters.
gpcopy is available only with the commercial release of VMware Tanzu Greenplum.
gpcopy is a high-performance utility that can copy metadata and data from one Greenplum database to another Greenplum database. You can migrate the entire contents of a database, or just selected tables. The clusters can have different Greenplum Database versions. For example, you can use
gpcopy to migrate data from a Greenplum Database version 4.3.26 (or later) system to a 5.9 (or later) or a 6.x Greenplum system, or from a Greenplum Database version 5.9+ system to a Greenplum 6.x system.
gpcopy utility is available as a separate download for the commercial release of Tanzu Greenplum. See the Tanzu Greenplum Data Copy Utility Documentation.
