SLT for source and target, both non-SAP

hi SLT gurus,

We are analyzing the option to migrate data from on-premise db into on-cloud db using SLT. Both the source and target are non-SAP and this will be a one time migrations with virtually no transformation needs.

This seems technically feasible given that SLT is compatible with both db - notes below.

However, I will appreciate if the gurus can share their thoughts on feasibility and risks involved. Given that our Source db is on mainframe, we do not have too many options for replication tool.

I have read ample notes/blogs but all of them have HANA/SAP on either side of the equation.

Thank you for your response Andrey. I have found several restrictions in 1768805 of which following are concerning in that order.

1. Null Values cannot be replicated if the target is non-HANA - Does this mean SLT will transform NULL to 'intial' depending on the data type? e.g. 0 for NULL Integer, '' for NULL Char etc.

2. Only elementary data types are supported

3. Trailing spaces will get truncated

I will greatly appreciate if you can share implications or work around on the concerns.
