- Resource elasticity
- Rapid provisioning
- Automated centralized management of all DBs
- Measured services, etc.
Over one year now.
Challenges faced when migrating the on-premise database to cloud, especially VLDBs.
Mostly with the internet availability and speed. Nothing really with the stability of the DBaaS.
Not anything we have come across.
Most of the DEV/UAT/TEST were on-premises, which moved to the cloud with consolidation.
There were technical challenges configuring the connectivity, moving the data, etc.
Installation was through a vendor.
Reduced the number of traditional storage/server architecture. More productivity and quick provisioning of the database helped moving the application to production quickly.
Oracle licensing is expensive compared to other competitors, such as AWS and MS Azure.
Yes. AWS and MS Azure.
Any DEV/UAT/TEST environments are really candidates to go for cloud and ensure you fully utilize the flexibility of cloud technologies.
