Lift Oracle to Azure 2-weeks Implementation

Ascent Technology

Rehost your Oracle Database as is into Azure to

  1. Reduce yearly Oracle Licensing Spend
  2. Trust your Oracle to an enterprise-ready cloud
  3. Get the highest levels of Performance and Scalability

Oracle Shift and List to Azure

Bring scalability, flexibility, security, and performance to your Oracle workloads, while reducing the cost of infrastructure and Oracle licensing when you deploy on Azure. Some database workloads like Oracle require high memory, storage, and IO bandwidth, but not a high core count. Azure offers certain VM sizes where VM vCPU count are constrained to reduce the cost of software licensing, while maintaining the memory, storage, and IO bandwidth.

Three reasons why you will love moving your Oracle Database to Azure.

  1. Reduce yearly Oracle Licensing Spend through CPU Core and Infrastructure Optimisation. Provide the availability, security, and performance you require at a fraction of the cost of running on premise. Azure constrained core virtual machines are optimized for Oracle workloads to help you lower your Oracle licensing costs.
  2. Trust your existing Oracle workloads to an enterprise ready cloud. Use your existing licenses to run Oracle on Azure. Rely on the cloud platform built for enterprises to ensure that your Oracle workloads achieve the scalability, flexibility and compliance your business requires.
  3. Deliver the highest levels of Performance and Scalability. By providing flexibility in the size and performance of storage and compute resources, Azure helps you ensure that your Oracle applications will scale to meet business demands.
