Ora2Pg is an easy and reliable tool to migrate from Oracle to PostgreSQL. It is developed since 2001 and can export most of the Oracle objects (table, view, tablespace, sequence, indexes, trigger, grant, function, procedure, package, partition, data, blob and external table). Ora2Pg works on any platform and is available under the GPL v3 licence. Docs, Download & Support at http://ora2pg.darold.net/
Postgresql (Postgres) is an enterprise class database system (DBMS) that is OpenSource, free to use and free of licence fees, that is released under the PostgreSQL License, which is an MIT-style license.
It compares very favourably to enterprise grade databases such as Oracle, Ingres (actian) and DB2. It is an upgrade from mid-range database products and light weight / embedded data stores.
Postgres is actively developed and has a large, active online community with many companies (including Kieser.net) offering commercial Postgres support.
