Accelerate and Manage with Oracle Cloud Migration Tools

March 10, 2022

According to Gartner’s latest assessment on Oracle’s Cloud IaaS & PaaS solution, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s design has evolved to support Oracle and Non-Oracle workloads because of which Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers a host of tooling and infrastructure support systems to cater to your custom needs.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers higher performance compute, storage, networking, and managed database instances that result in a high-performance experience for your users at a lower cost of operation. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the only platform where you can run the Oracle Database with Oracle RAC or Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service. Other cloud systems are limited to less robust configurations.

Oracle offers tailored tooling and automation to simplify the process of deployment, migration, upgrades, and maintenance of your critical application implementation to OCI. With this approach client saves significant time and cost, reduces the level of expertise required, and minimizes the risk involved.

Oracle Cloud Migration Tools

Tools for Cloud Assessment

Define high-level process that you will be using to assess your existing workloads and which data you’ll be gathering to determine suitability for a cloud migration initiative. Gathered data should include enough information to determine the risk associated with the application, the technical and performance requirements, and whether the application can be moved “as is,” or if it requires transformation.

  • Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM)
  • Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA)
  • ITC’s Customized Cloud Assessment

Our certified cloud experts (CSPE) have successfully migrated critical environments to Oracle cloud for customers. Cloud expert teams help build a strategic roadmap of Application to Cloud journey with a personalized cloud assessment & TCO for you. You are assured of getting no-surprises or roadblocks on your cloud journey.

Tools for Data Migration to Cloud

Streamline migration with the use of Oracle native tools, tried and tested Intellectual properties (IP) & PaaS, which is designed and developed through a skilled team and have successfully executed complex projects. This team should have deep knowledge of the tools design methodologies for the migration project. Well documented projects can accelerate the migration process

Tools for Cloud Optimization

Oracle provides Observability, Monitoring and Management Platform to be used walong with analytics services which also becomes a base for Oracle’s Autonomous Database services as well.

For enabling digital infrastructure,  Observability is a critical need. Moving beyond log monitoring and dashboards, you can quickly correlate, analyze and take action on infrastructure and applications performance metrics. 

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s web-based applications automate provisioning, lifecycle management, and on-premises environment restoration.

Tools to Manage Cloud Securely

Oracle Security & Management: (e.g., Blueprints, Security Center, Backup, Monitor)
Now manage and control the access of users to your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources. Oracle IAM can help specify the level of access, and identify the specific infrastructure resources they can access using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure identity and access management.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Vault – Key Management: This tool enables you to encrypt data using keys you control. Unified managed and maintained the encryption keys that protect enterprise data and the secret credentials used to securely access cloud resources on Oracle Cloud.

Oracle CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) provides complete visibility to the entire cloud stack with security automation tools customized to your IT team needs into your. Gain visibility and detect threats on the entire cloud stack for workloads and applications with Oracle CASB.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Bastion service enables access to private hosts without deploying and maintaining a jump host. Without the need for a public IP for bastion access, eliminating the hassle and potential attack surface from remote access.
