Magento 2 is based on a better code that makes Magento 2 easier and flexible to use. Besides, It also supports efficient APIs, theming capabilities, and turnkey extensions. As you are probably aware of, Magento 2 will come with a brand new architecture and database design. To ease up upgrade process, Magento released official Data Migration Tool that will help developers migrate store data from Magento 1 to Magento 2.
Data Migration Tool transfers data from M1 database to the M2 database based on a set of rules defined in XML files. To be clear, this tool only transfers data. Themes and customizations of your store can’t be automatically changed or migrated to Magento2. Migration tool migrates can migrate all-settings, products, categories, orders, customers, product review and linked-product relation(cross-sell, related products) etc. Basically, it migrates everything. If you have multiple stores, It can migrate all stores and linked data with all the stores. You can delete/filter migrated data on Magento2 store.
It is highly recommended to create a backup of the Magento 1 database and to truncate all the log tables before upgrading the website.
