Road to Oracle Cloud by Markus Lohn

In this blogpost, I want to share my experience of migrating an Oracle SOA solution from on-premise to the cloud. But why was it necessary to think about this possibility? More than two years ago, our customer launched a comprehensive program to to make sales fit for the future. A huge area also covered IT support and automation of sales business processes. The solution introduced the use of different cloud system that have to be integrated. The integration part was achieved with the Oracle SOA platform. The SOA platform connects internal IT systems with external business partners and customers. The SOA platform is operated on-premise in the customer’s DMZ zone.

Now that several systems have already been operated in the cloud and due to limited resources available to operate the SOA platform, the customer considered to move the platform into the cloud. The primary goal of a cloud deployment was to relieve the operations team. This allows the operations team to focus on functional monitoring. Furthermore, the following objectives were important:

  • The manufacturer ensures the best support for the operation of the platform, e.g. load balancing and clustering.
  • Installation of patches or new versions performed by the software provider.
  • HA capabilities are already firmly integrated in the cloud service and the system is continuously protected by backups against failure.
  • Additional resources can be easily requested or returned on demand. Read the complete article here.
