Oracle Cloud Lift Services give Oracle clients expanded access to technical solutions, like LiveData Migrator, and cloud engineering services to help them migrate to OCI more quickly. Oracle provides these tools and services at no additional cost to all existing and new Oracle Cloud customers globally, allowing them to save time, money, and internal resources in their cloud migrations.
This move would benefit enterprise clients with large production datasets. Manual transfer techniques may cost up to $1 million per petabyte of data, according to WANdisco’s 15 years of client engagements and industry data estimates. According to 451 Research, the most significant pain factor for firms that have just migrated to the cloud is pricing.
To solve these issues, Oracle Cloud Lift Services will use WANdisco’s LiveData Migrator and WANdisco support to plan, manage, and execute enterprise-scale digital conversions from Oracle Big Data Appliance and other cloud environments to OCI. When compared to manual cloud migration methods, WANdisco LiveData Migrator can reduce time to business value significantly and provide businesses with quicker data availability in the cloud.
“We are looking forward to partnering with Oracle to support enterprise customers on their move to the cloud, and help them realize their data-first and digital transformation initiatives,” said David Richards, CEO and Chairman at WANdisco. “Oracle’s selection of our LiveData Migrator to help provide zero-cost migrations is a testament to our ability to accelerate cloud transformation without business disruption or downtime. We’re looking forward to working alongside Oracle and setting a new benchmark in supporting enterprise customers in moving to the cloud and accelerating time to business value.”
Data Management and Analytics
This partnership would advance Oracle’s vision for the growth of data management and analytics by facilitating the capture, storage, and analysis of a wide range of data types from numerous sources. With no disruption or downtime, WANdisco’s LiveData Migrator will manage the transfer and replication of data and metadata from Hadoop data lakes and cloud settings to data lakehouses on OCI. LiveData Migrator will secure business continuity during migrations and expedite time to business insights, enabling Oracle clients to remain ahead of the competition and provide excellent customer experiences.
“Our goal is to make cloud migrations as easy as possible for our customers and partners,” said Vinay Kumar, senior vice president, North America Cloud Solutions Engineering, Oracle. “Adding WANdisco LiveData Migrator to our Cloud Lift Services will help deliver accelerated data lake migrations with robust data security and integrity across a variety of data sources.”
