Next Migrating Oracle Enterprise Apps to the Cloud: Seven Dos and Don'ts-4 Next

Don't Risk Unnecessary Downtime

Don't risk unnecessary downtime – make sure you know what data transfer capabilities your chosen cloud provider affords you (this applies to every cloud approach — public, private, hosted or managed services). Each cloud has its own standards for data transfer; data migration between different platforms is not transparent and must be performed as quickly as possible. For example, Azure only offers Windows and Linux; this means full-cycle platform migration for the customers on AIX/Solaris/HP-UX. No organization can afford to shut down business while a migration occurs. Therefore, to minimize platform-change risks, leverage resources with proven migration experience.  

Thinking about moving your Oracle enterprise applications to the cloud? Excellent. There are many benefits to cloud computing, but first you have to get there — and it can be (but doesn't have to be) a daunting process. As you determine the best approach for your organization (e.g., public or private clouds, hosted and managed services, etc.), keep in mind the actual, physical migration and what "cutover" entails, not to mention the demands of ongoing application maintenance. Understand that enterprise applications have unique requirements, particularly because they are often highly customized to meet the specific business needs of an organization.

Cloud migrations can't be performed successfully on the fly, or by skeleton crews or by DBAs that have only conducted software upgrades a few times a year. Oracle expertise and hands-on migration experience are crucial to the initiative. In this slideshow, Data Intensity, LLC shares seven tips for enterprises looking to migrate their Oracle enterprise applications to the cloud.
