Are you thinking about moving your Oracle databases to the cloud or making the transition to Database as a Service (DBaaS)?
With cloud computing vendors offering more services at lower prices, the barriers to spinning up cloud resources are diminishing. But there are few black-and-white questions in technology and even fewer in business, which is why smart companies look at all the shades of grey in an innovation like the cloud-based database before they commit on a large scale.
In part one of this two-part series, you’ll examine the what, why, when, where and how of database cloud computing. This overview of the current cloud landscape includes answers to the most commonly asked questions and a number of important but frequently overlooked points. Database administrators (DBAs) and managers will gain a better view of the path to the cloud, whether they are preparing to migrate two dozen web pages or two dozen years of transaction history.
