The Benefits

Optimizing your Oracle workloads with Google Cloud solutions has a number of benefits.

Dramatically reduce TCO: Reduce up-front hardware, software, and maintenance costs. Migrating Oracle workloads to Google Cloud could result in up to 78% in TCO savings.

High scale and high availability: Mission-critical applications need dependable databases that scale with your business. Google Cloud offers SLA-backed databases to protect your apps.

Simplify operation: Reduce data center and database management by leveraging managed infrastructure and fully managed database services.

Migration Strategies

Google Cloud provides multiple strategies for your specific migration journey to help you with licensing, maintenance cost, and manageability.

Rehost: To migrate Oracle workloads with specific configurations, Google Cloud offers Bare Metal Solution, where you can simply lift and shift your workloads. Bare Metal Solution provides hardware, hardware support, and integrated billing and support. This infrastructure is connected with a highly resilient interconnect and connects to all native Google Cloud services with less than 2ms latency.

Replatform: Keep your core application code and migrate to compatible platforms to help reduce licensing fees and maintenance costs. You can migrate to an open source database such as Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL that has a certain amount of compatibility with PL/SQL and stored procedure. You can also offload data analytics-centric workloads to SQL-compatible data warehousing solutions like BigQuery.

Rewrite: Rewrite your application to take full advantage of cloud-native databases. If your application requires a relational database with global scalability, you can migrate to Cloud Spanner, which provides scalability with industry-leading high availability of 99.999% SLA.
