YES, You Can Migrate Non-Oracle Apps to OCI - Cloud Advisory

Table of Contents

    If you thought that Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) was strictly for Oracle applications, you should think again. The truth is, you can migrate any workload to Oracle Cloud—and most customers do. Oracle Cloud supports much more than just Oracle applications and databases. In fact, the majority of application workloads that are deployed on Oracle Cloud consist of Microsoft Windows, IBM WebSphere, Tomcat, and JBoss, along with third-party databases such as SQL Server, DB2, MongoDB, Cassandra, Postgres, and Sybase. With Oracle, there is no workload left behind—and no compromise.

    Migrating and Hosting Non-Oracle Workloads on OCI

    OCI allows for the migration of any workload to the Cloud, setting the stage for a new era of cloud-based data, applications, and infrastructure. For existing customers who are currently running Oracle applications like PeopleSoft, eBusiness Suite, JD Edwards, Hyperion, OBIEE, Primavera, Agile, Siebel, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Databases and Oracle WebLogic Server on-premise, these workloads can be migrated as-is, upgraded and migrated, refactored and optimized for a smooth transition and implementation to Oracle Cloud. With the addition of Oracle Management Cloud and Oracle Cloud Monitoring Service, you have a single pane of glass view into all applications and infrastructure workloads running on Oracle Cloud, other public and private Clouds, and your on-premise data center environments, thus minimizing costs and reducing complexity. The vast array of migration tools provided by Oracle for migrating Oracle workloads to OCI makes it easy to get started and even easier to scale. You can start by lifting and shifting a handful of business-critical applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) or you can migrate all - the choice is yours. Your applications and workloads are “lifted” from the current on-prem location and “shifted” as-is to the new premise in the Cloud. With this migration, oftentimes there are no major changes to the architecture of the applications, data flow, or authentications, unless you want to introduce those elements.

    Oracle Cloud is Proven for All Applications and Workloads

    Application Development and Testing

    • Move select application development activities to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

    • Choose the languages, tools, and open source technologies you need

    Production Deployments

    • Move your entire environment to the cloud—IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS
    • Run Oracle Database, Oracle Applications, and Oracle middleware
    • Include non-Oracle databases, applications, and middleware

    Also ideal for data warehouse workloads, DBAs have instant access to infrastructures such as servers, network, storage, and database platforms while utilizing cloud-based tools for monitoring, analytics, and management. They can take full advantage of a wide range of platform services for business intelligence, as well as, the use of Oracle’s cloud-based integration services to accommodate third-party analytical applications.
