Migrating to the public cloud for any organization that has been running workloads on-premises can be very intimidating. Some enterprise applications and legacy infrastructure still remain on-premises. It’s often a preference as most enterprise applications hold long-term value, data, and crucial business processes. How do IT leaders make the decision when it’s time to move to cloud?
When planning a migration to cloud, IT leaders with businesses that started on-premises have several difficult decisions to make early-on. They have to deal with the complexities of moving certain data, applications, or business processes to cloud. It often will require a set of tools, services, and planning to understand the implications to their business. With the overall role of IT expanding to focus more on the business strategy, it’s also critical to consider how cloud reduces costs, improves resource management, and improves the speed of innovation across the organization. While embracing cloud may be cost effective and help advance business goals, ensuring a straightforward migration between traditional infrastructure and the cloud is essential.
Next Generation Cloud Infrastructure
Oracle has delivered a public cloud architected specifically to run enterprise applications and databases. It provides tools and utilities for constructing new cloud native and mobile apps, all on a unified platform and networking fabric. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers the performance, versatility, and governance required by enterprise IT while offering a level of performance often exceeding what is commonly found in on-premises, high-performance computing environments. Oracle also offers tools to migrate existing applications to the cloud without forcing businesses to rearchitect those applications—along with focused cloud support for Oracle applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and more.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), a next-generation cloud, combines the elasticity and utility of the public cloud with the control, security, performance, and predictability of on-premise computing environments. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers consistent service levels for all types of applications and computing environments. This includes technical computing workloads such as simulating crash test, modelling insurance risks, and testing new manufacturing materials. With Oracle Cloud, organizations have their own network, called a virtual cloud network which is isolated from every other customer’s network. These virtual cloud networks can include single-tenant, high-performance, bare metal servers that contain no provider software. This enables organizations to customize their computing environments and run applications in the same manner as they do on-premise.

Get Enterprise Apps into the Cloud Quickly
To help organizations succeed, Oracle has specialized field-tested tools and programs to help companies move enterprise applications like Oracle E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, and Siebel to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle provides an easy, cost-effective way to move business-critical Oracle Applications to the cloud.
Exceptional Performance and Granular Control
Oracle’s next-generation cloud infrastructure offers powerful CPU options, massive memory capabilities, and dense storage capacity. To run enterprise applications, high-performance computing (HPC), transactional database applications, and real-time analytics, it demands peak levels of performance and predictability. Oracle Cloud helps organizations run traditional enterprise apps along with cloud native apps, all on the same platform. This reduces operational overhead and enables direct connectivity between both types of workloads.
Companies expect service-level commitments for uptime so that applications are available, manageable, and performing as expected. This should be guaranteed regardless of where that application may be located. Oracle backs its cloud offering with service-level agreements (SLAs) for performance, availability, and manageability.
Focus on Your Business, Not on the IT underpinnings
Oracle provides a solution for migrating and run Oracle applications in the cloud. It provides the tools to migrate, as well as ways to move traditional data center applications to the cloud – with no architecture changes. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure combines the benefits of public cloud (self-service, on-demand availability, and scalability) with the advantages usually associated with on-premises environments (predictability, performance, and control).
