You can use the
gpcopy utility to transfer data between databases in different Greenplum Database clusters.
gpcopyis available only with the commercial release of VMware 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 VMware Greenplum 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, from a Greenplum Database version 5.9+ system to a Greenplum 6.x system, or from a 6.x Greenplum system to a Greenplum 7.x system.
gpcopyutility is available as a separate download for the commercial release of VMware Greenplum. See the VMware Greenplum Data Copy Utility Documentation.
