Migrating from Oracle Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition 2
Are you considering downsizing some of your Oracle databases from Enterprise Edition (EE) to Standard Edition 2 (SE2) to save on licensing costs?

Are you looking to rationalize the distribution of your Oracle databases, migrating some to the cloud, to lower data center costs?

Downsizing to SE2 on-premises may not be straightforward, due to the restriction SE2 imposes on the number of processors, and may require a hardware change. Migrating to a cloud service provider and using Oracle SE2, therefore, offers some attractive options and may be suitable for many non-enterprise or less-critical situations.

However, database migrations can be risky and expensive because they typically involve some planned downtime and, if something goes wrong with the migration, the costs and business disruption could be huge.

In this webcast, we will present a way to migrate your Oracle databases from EE to SE2 that minimizes these risks. You’ll learn how to ensure a successful database migration with no downtime and zero data loss.
