Description

The Database Preservation Toolkit allows conversion between Database formats, including connection to live systems, for purposes of digitally preserving databases. The toolkit allows conversion of live or backed-up databases into preservation formats such as SIARD, a XML-based format created for the purpose of database preservation. The toolkit also allows conversion of the preservation formats back into live systems to allow the full functionality of databases.

The Database Preservation Toolkit supports the following Database Management Systems:

  • MySQL/MariaDB
  • PostgreSQL
  • Oracle
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Microsoft Access
  • And other databases (using JDBC)

Database Preservation Toolkit can convert any of the above DBMS to the following preservation formats:

  • SIARD 1
  • SIARD 2
  • SIARD DK

The Database Preservation Toolkit is also capable of loading preserved databases into any of the above DBMS.
