    BANNER LIFT AND SHIFT TO ORACLE CLOUD - Cloud Hosting and Managed Services

    Cloud Hosting and Managed Services

    Astute’s Banner Cloud Hosting and Managed Services Solution deliver high performance, enhanced security, complete monitoring, and cost efficiencies powered by Oracle Cloud. By moving your Banner applications and related infrastructure to Oracle Cloud, Astute delivers on-demand computing resources that are tailored to your peak volume needs, while maintaining a steady-state baseline system at other times to make it cost-efficient. Disaster Recovery is standard in our Banner Hosting and Managed Services to safeguard against unexpected downtimes or shortages. By implementing Oracle Database Cloud Service Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), File Encryption, Secure Backups, Secure Network Connectivity, and a Secure-by-Default network security solution, Astute helps you improve your Banner security posture on Oracle Cloud. 

    Security, specifically adding a disaster recovery capability and an incentive to stop sharing resources between production, test, and development environments were the impetus behind Gonzaga University’s recent migration from Banner version 8 to OCI. As the CTO of the university described, “We were 95% moving to AWS. [But] at the end of the day, our Infrastructure team, our ERP team, our Project Management team voted—it was unanimous for OCI.”

    Many educational institutions, including our customers at the University of Idaho and Laureate University, have made the decision to migrate their databases to OCI.
