How to migrate from Microsoft SQL Server to an Oracle Database 12c centralized environment with ODP.NET

Recently the Federal Tax Service of Russia migrated from their Microsoft SQL Server environment to an Oracle Database 12c centralized environment with the help of ODP.NET.

The Federal Tax Ministry of Russia is a national government agency located in Moscow. It operates nine regional offices that oversee major taxpayers with a wide network of local offices that employ 140,000 people.The ministry is in the process of migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to Oracle Database 12c technology and Exadata. Its goal is to centralize all fiscal data access, improve performance, and reduce storage costs, while continuing to keep its investment in a Microsoft .NET infrastructure.

Oracle Database 12c makes developing and deploying Oracle on Windows and .NET easier, faster, and more cost-effectiveBy using Oracle’s .NET components (ODP.NET), the tax ministry can adopt new Oracle Database 12c features for their .NET applications. The migration to Oracle so far is meeting their goal for centralized data access and provides 20x better performance with a tenfold reduction in storage costs.

Listen to this Database Insider Podcast Interview for more details about their migration from Microsoft SQL Server to Oracle Database 12c.

Tom Kyte writes about Oracle Database 12c Multitenant Option in Oracle Magazine

In the March issue of Oracle Magazine, Tom Kyte discusses Oracle Database 12c Multitenant option with Patrick Wheeler, Oracle Sr. Director of Product Management.

This exchange between two Oracle Experts explains how Oracle Multitenant option can save customers capital expenses by consolidating more applications per server and reducing operating expenses. 

Companies face enormous pressure to consolidate - to reduce floor space, power costs, and license costs and at the same time to realize the benefits of cloud computing and cloud-based agility, including rapid, low-cost self-service provisioning and delivery of standardized services. Its no longer a question of whether to consolidate but how to consolidate.

Oracle Multitenant is a new option for Oracle Database 12c that provides a multitenant architecture for consolidating databases and simplifying operations in the cloud.

You'll find more articles on Oracle Database 12c written by Tom Kyte in past issues of Oracle Magazine.
