IBM Lift CLI makes it easy to quickly, securely and reliably migrate large data sets from your on-premises database or data source to an IBM cloud data property. Lift enables ultra-high-speed data movement to the cloud with embedded IBM Aspera, a highly-efficient data transport technology with speeds over 10x faster than traditional migration tools. Lift is a free offering that provides a simple yet extremely flexible bulk data loader, driven through a CLI, using a push-data model. It automatically recovers from common problems during the migration process, such as connection timeouts. All data moved over the wire to the IBM Cloud is completely secure via a 256-bit encrypted connection. Lift also behaves just like any cloud service. You’ll install the product once, and updates will stream to your install automatically.
