What to consider?
It is critical for enterprises who are at the start of their journey towards the Cloud to look at cloud strategies from a holistic viewpoint when considering data migration.
Foundational cloud platforms must be integrated into a single architecture and consist of:
- A strong and secure public cloud that delivers maximum flexibility and compelling economies of scale.
- Private cloud(s) for sensitive data that . must be kept on-premise for security, geography or regulatory reasons.
- Hybrid capabilities that connect and unify all clouds, data, services, and applications.
Enterprises considering a move to either private, public or hybrid cloud need to address several key questions:
Do i need acquire new licenses?
Which technologies are used?
How many partners do in need to make happy?
Where will my data kept?
What service level can i except?
What service window does my business need?
Which environment do i migrate first?
Can i choose the technologies i need?
Can i create disaster recovery environment in the Cloud?
What performance can i expect, is it scalable?
Can i bring my own license?
What about license compliance with virtual technology and Oracle?
How to comply with European Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
Why to the Oracle Cloud?
As we know the world is changing rapidly and businesses are under pressure to perform, to grow and maximize the return on investment to sustain and survive the ever-increasing competition.
IT departments in today’s businesses are no different and are looking at Cloud for be-coming more efficient and cost-effective.
Cloud computing offers several advantages and is encouraging companies for a move to the cloud in order to get:
Cloud computing allows companies to scale up or scale down the services implemented with great ease and flexibility eliminating the need to plan and acquire own infrastructure to cope with the sudden influx of demand.
Cutting down on the cost assumes significant importance for any enterprise and cloud
service providers offer computing power at low cost given the fact that service providers benefit from huge economies of scale.
Another aspect is that cloud services are offered in a pay-as-you-use model that requires the companies to pay only for the services used thereby facilitating cost-savings.
The amount of time required to commission, install and configure services generally takes weeks in the traditional method while using a cloud service provider enables the enterprises to set up and run the services in a matter of hours.
Maintenance on IT environments requires a lot of effort and belongs to one of the most challenging tasks of the IT department and are very time-consuming.
With the implementation of Cloud services these time-consuming maintenance activities like patching and upgrades are now automatized and IT departments are now able to spend their time on more important issues.
Benefits of Oracle Cloud
Oracle Cloud is the most powerful, unified cloud solution available today. Oracle is the only vendor that provides a complete, integrated stack for the cloud and is therefore unique in the market compared to its competitors.
The public cloud is maturing. It is powering business transformations across the globe. By utilizing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) customers are now able to have more flexible, scalable and agile environments than ever before.
Oracle Cloud In-frastructure (OCI) provides customers with a cost-effective platform for achieving their desired business outcomes.
