The Top 4 Benefits of Migrating Oracle Workloads to the Cloud

The rise of cloud computing solutions has unleashed a revolutionary wave of change and innovation for enterprise IT. One particularly complex area for companies considering a cloud migration is Oracle databases and the workloads associated with them. In our recent white paper, A Guide to Running Oracle Workloads with Google Cloud Platform, we explore this topic in depth. 

Before you start on a path to migration, you are likely wondering: what are the key benefits of moving Oracle workloads to Google Cloud Platform? Below is a summary of the top four benefits enterprises experience when migrating to the cloud.

  • Flexibility: A move to Google Cloud enables the modernization of enterprise architecture to drive digital transformation. In addition to rightsizing resources, the addition of unique features available only from Google allows for more choice in using the right tool for the job at hand.
  • Cost Optimization: Paying for resources on an as-needed basis opens the possibility of lowering costs, and the added visibility offered by a public cloud approach helps to manage costs with greater clarity and in real-time.
  • Scalability: Moving to Google Cloud brings the advantage of being able to automatically scale up to meet demand. This allows the enterprise to readily respond to peak demand situations without having to invest in redundant infrastructure to be able to do so. The move to GCP removes past barriers to application use without needing to build additional infrastructure.
  • Advanced Analytics: Moving to Google Cloud opens up the opportunity to utilize unique and powerful machine learning and advanced analytics tools such as BigQuery. The ultimate result is greater insights and improved customer experience.

Making the Most of New Technology

The pressure is on businesses to adapt and change, particularly in challenging economic times. The migration of Oracle workloads is a great example of how superior performance, lower cost, and greater flexibility can be delivered via Google Cloud. The combination of Google Bare Metal Solutions (BMS) with Atos Oracle Hotel for GCP offers multiple opportunities to improve performance, lower costs, and set the stage for continued digital transformation. 

Google BMS enables enterprises to bring Oracle workloads to Google Cloud, allowing you access and integration with GCP services with minimal latency. BMS provides the option to move existing Oracle environments into the cloud as-is with support for clustered deployments, with support for older versions of the database and existing administration tools.

The Atos Database Hotel offering is a private cloud solution that runs in a colocation data center with low latency connection to Google Cloud, saving you money on licensing cost and giving you more power per licensed core.

As a trusted Google Cloud Premier Partner, Atos is delivering its Atos Database Hotel on top of Google Cloud’s Bare Metal Service (BMS) for Oracle. This is a managed service for enterprise customers, providing organizations with a fully managed and secure cloud service, seamlessly integrated with Google Cloud, and leveraging Atos’ end-to-end orchestration, management, and infrastructure services.
