Enterprise Workload Migration
From the world's most powerful databases to mission-critical business applications, Oracle has been creating technologies that serve the needs of enterprise customers for more than 40 years. Oracle used that experience as the basis for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure—the first public cloud designed from the ground up to be the best platform for enterprise applications. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides enterprise customers with:
- The highest-performing block storage
- Non-blocking networks
- Consistent, predictable performance of compute instances
- Simple pricing models
- Total cost of ownership up to 50% lower than other cloud providers
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Benefits
Reduction in total cost of ownership
Business and operational agility
Calculating the total cost of ownership (TCO) for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is easy with this TCO Calculator. Use it to find out how much your current IT costs can be reduced by migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Cloud Migration Strategies
There are many roads to cloud adoption. Some are easy and offer a quick return on investment (ROI). Others are more complex and time consuming but provide better ROI over the long term. For most enterprises, migration to the cloud will involve some combination of these three strategies:
Migrate existing IT environments to the cloud
Switch to software as a service (SaaS) applications
The quickest way to realize the benefits of Oracle's cloud is to migrate existing IT environments with minimal changes. Oracle created this Migration Central page to bring together all the resources customers need to execute a successful cloud migration, whether they are trying to migrate just a few applications and VMs, or multiple data centers.
Migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Enterprises often use a large number of applications from many different vendors that are integrated using a collection of standard tools or custom-built applications. By providing a collection of native and third-party tools, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure makes it easy for organizations to migrate physical and virtual infrastructure from on-premises data centers or other clouds—no matter what applications they are running. A typical cloud migration involves five stages, beginning with the assessment and evaluation of the IT environment to be migrated, and ending with the successful launch of cloud-based IT resources that have been fully tested for functionality and performance.
Source capture and preparation
Capturing every bit of information that needs to be migrated to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is critical for the target environment to be complete and viable.
Transporting VMs, data, and files to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Once you have captured the source instances, the next step is transporting them to the target environment in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Small scale migrations of up to 50 VMs can be carried out using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure native tools and manual steps. But if plans call for a large-scale migration that includes entire data centers and hundreds or thousands of VMs, it's a good idea to work with a member of Oracle's extensive partner network. Here are some resources to choose from:
- The Oracle Consulting Service provides users with deep migration expertise.
- Visit Oracle's Technology Partners page to explore specialized migration tools from independent software vendor (ISV) partners.
- Visit the Systems Integrator Partners page to leverage Oracle's proven network of cloud migration partners.
