Oracle Cloud Migration Factory

By Richard Petley, Senior Vice President Technology UKI & UK Country Leader

For the First and Only Dedicated, Compliant, and Truly Sovereign Cloud in the UK.

On the 20th October we announced the launch of Oracle’s new dual-region government cloud, which provides public sector organisations with unmatched security, local compliance, performance, adaptability and cost-savings. The new region forms part of Oracle’s commitment to providing the government with enterprise grade cloud services, in line with the global roll out of Oracle Gen2 Cloud. 

As part of this commitment to the public sector, and to ensure customers get the maximum benefit from moving to Oracle’s Gen2 Cloud, Oracle UK has created its new UK Public Sector Migration Factory. 

The Oracle Cloud Migration Factory for UK Public Sector has been created to support public sector organisations as they move workloads, including packaged applications, such as Fusion Applications and e-Business Suite, databases and virtualized workloads, from existing systems into Oracle’s dual-region government cloud. The Migration Factory, run by our own Oracle Consulting team, will migrate existing environments from on-premise to Oracle’s Gen2 Cloud, leveraging automation and proven processes to ensure customers can realise the benefits of the new infrastructure swiftly and painlessly.

With the Migration Factory being run by Oracle Consulting, customers can expect to benefit from four key elements:

  • Low Cost. Oracle Migration Factory automation and managed processes enable lower cost migrations.
  • Low Risk. Reduce the risk of project delays and failed attempts by engaging the experts the first time around.
  • Confidence. Proven approach and experience increasing confidence that your data will be moved correctly the first time.
  • Fast Time to Value. Realise the benefits of your cloud investment quicker by engaging Oracle Consulting Services to prepare your data for movement to the cloud.

In addition, with the complete sovereignty of data offered by the Oracle dual-region government cloud, the UK Public Sector Migration Factory also adheres to the security principles outlined by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), and is built upon the parameters necessary to store Sensitive and Official Sensitive data. This ensures all government data being migrated into the new region is highly secure, and meets all local regulations.

To ensure that customers are able to maximize the capabilities of Oracle’s cloud, the Oracle Consulting’s experts will offer a robust training programme. As part of this, they will share their knowledge of the technology, allowing the customers to not only make the best use of the cloud, but also to work independently. 

Ultimately, the goal of creating the UK Public Sector Migration Factory is to provide public sector customers with an easy way of moving existing workloads to Oracle’s Cloud. It will allow them to do this quickly, securely and at a low cost, so that they can focus on providing services to UK citizens.
