Strategies for migrating a large database into Digital Ocean Managed Databases

Considering you cannot set the server as a slave, I don’t see a way forward to be able to import a fairly large database with no downtime to Digital Ocean Managed Databases.

Is this service only designed for new projects, or projects that can have downtime? Or is there some alternative way to migrate without having to set a remote master to get it in sync with my db?
