Pivotal Greenplum Database is a MPP (massively parallel processing) relational database built on open source PostgreSQL.

It's a very capable open-source data warehouse, able to work with petabytes of data. Greenplum is geared towards big data analytics. Work is performed by segments nodes, who run on one or more segments - and each segment is a modified PostgreSQL database instance.

Greenplum can act as a standard transactional database, as it supports ACID. However, it's optimized for analytical workloads, not for OLTP.

As Greenplum is derived from PostgreSQL and is compatible in connection mechanisms with it, all our applications that work with PostgreSQL will work perfectly with Greenplum database.

Full Convert supports Greenplum database directly.

Greenplum data types we support


bigint (int8), int (integer, int4), smallint (int2)


decimal (dec, numeric, fixed), double precision (double, float8), float, money, real (float4)


char (bpchar, character), text, varchar (character varying)




date, time (timetz, time without time zone), timestamp (timestamp without time zone, timestamp(2) without time zone), timestamptz (timestamp with time zone, timestamp(2) with time zone)

Large objects

bytea, geography, geometry, text, xml


array, boolean (bool), cidr, citext, enum, hstore, inet, interval, json, jsonb, macaddr, oid, uuid, varbit (bit varying)

Export Greenplum database

It may make sense to migrate your data away from Greenplum. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.

We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current Greenplum database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.

Take a look at the quick tutorials below to see how it's done.

Import data into Greenplum database

Additionally, if you want to import data on a regular basis and do not want to recreate the whole target database from scratch every time, but rather do tiny targeted sync of only changes since the last run, please use Full Convert Pro or Ultimate.
