About Quistor

IESE logo

Quistor moved our PeopleSoft on-premise environment to the Oracle Cloud in record time, achieving increased performance and significant financial savings. Quistor was the primary partner for this migration, ensuring a smooth execution of the project, delivering on time and on budget.”

Floris Krabbe, Teamlead of the BI-team of the UG: “We wanted to go to the cloud for management reasons, but also for privacy reasons and better security. The main goal was to implement the latest version of the Oracle software. We were quite behind in that area and that meant security risks were intertwined. Cloud migration to Oracle Analytics Cloud ensures that software upgrades are automated from Oracle. Also, in case of technical issues, you no longer need to have that knowledge in-house and can fall back on Oracle and Quistor.”

“Quistor filled us with confidence by ensuring we had the right level of technical support throughout the process.”

About Oracle Cloud Services

“Our ambition is to create a platform to react quickly to disease, which involves the creation of terabytes of imaging data. Using Oracle Cloud, we can distribute the data across multiple processors and get results in a fraction of the time of a traditional on-premise system.”

“As we upgrade the Large Hadron Collider, we are investigating Oracle Cloud solutions as one possible way to help us handle the growing volumes of data and have used Oracle Big Data to develop our plans for a new, even larger particle accelerator.”

Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service met our cloud-first policy, solved our browser compatibility issues, and enabled controllers to enter data faster through increased performance. Oracle Cloud significantly reduces our total cost of ownership and enables us to forecast and control human capital costs.”

the OCRE project


To accelerate digital transformation, the Open Clouds for Research Environments (OCRE) project was initiated by GÉANT, the leading collaboration on e-infrastructure and services for research and education. This resulted in ready-to-use framework agreements which make it easy for institutions to access commercial cloud services and for cloud operators to deliver their services without complex public procurements and competitive tenders.

As of 2021, Quistor is an official OCRE framework holder and exclusive reseller of Oracle Cloud services in five European countries: Belgium, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Over the next four years Quistor will support the R&E community by offering consultation, migration, implementation, training, and managed services.

Benefits for the Research & Education community

Cloud-based services offer companies a wide range of powerful tools, but it is often time-consuming and complex to move this process forward. OCRE brings cloud providers, Earth Observation (EO) organisations, and the R&E community together through ready-to-use service agreements. These agreements make it easier for institutions to access commercial cloud services, eliminating the need to run complex public procurements and competitive tenders.
