Oracle set an ambitious goal in building its second-generation cloud infrastructure: to create an infrastructure that matches and surpasses the performance, control and governance of enterprise datacentres. Delivering the scale, elasticity, and cost-savings of public clouds when a UK utility company decided to modernise the hosting for their enterprise applications, the customer chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The result, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, is built from the ground up to be an Enterprise Cloud, equally capable of running traditional multi-tiered enterprise applications, high-performance workloads, and modern serverless and container-based architectures.
This customer has requirements that perfectly line up with OCI’s capabilities as they have a large investment in mission critical applications including high performance requirements. The perfect partner to help them realise their goals in leveraging the Cloud is Oracle Consulting. OC provided a methodology that helped the customer migrate their applications reliably. We worked with their application support teams to ensure the application teams had everything they needed for the complete recovery of the applications and especially the integrations that tie the applications together.
The customer used OC to help with migrations from non-Cloud hosting environments like AIX converting them to Linux, plus they had a large Windows estate. OC migrated over 150 Oracle databases and were able to upgrade many of them eliminating technical debt that existed since their last datacentre migration five years ago. Oracle Consulting’s True Cloud Method for Migrations provided a standardised repeatable model for the programme to follow ensuring successful application migrations while modernising their infrastructure and taking advantage of the new Cloud Native capabilities in OCI. The price points for OCI offers substantial savings compared to their legacy hosting model and the use of automation and orchestration further cut cost out of the migration and endures to minimise costs for the target operating model for the future.
Oracle Consulting can help you achieve substantial results by helping you move your application estate to the Oracle Cloud.
