Oracle is enhancing Oracle Cloud Lift Services with new capabilities that make it easier for customers to design and migrate their data lakehouse and AI-enabled application environments to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
According to Oracle, more than 1,000 global organizations are using Oracle Cloud Lift Services to accelerate the migration of mission-critical workloads to OCI.
Globally, the company says, customers and partners, including Ingersoll Rand, Volvo Group, Suramericana SA, National Pharmacies, Accenture, Cognizant, Infosys, and Syntax, continue to move enterprise and line-of-business applications, as well as complex integrations, from on-prem and other clouds to OCI.
Launched in March 2021, Oracle Cloud Lift Services provide organizations with a single point of contact for end-to-end technical delivery, remove critical expertise barriers to adopting OCI services, speed time to value, and create faster opportunities to innovate. As part of the offering, organizations receive expert guidance from experienced cloud engineers on planning, architecting, prototyping, and managing cloud migrations—at no additional cost. As a result, customers can move critical workloads in weeks, or even days, instead of months. Additionally, Oracle works with customers until their workloads are in production and provides training on best practices, so customers have the expertise to run their environment independently or work with a “Day 2” managed service provider.
“As an increasing number of organizations look to move their most important enterprise workloads to the cloud, they have found that they want hands-on assistance to make their migrations as quick and seamless as possible,” said Vinay Kumar, senior vice president, North America cloud solutions engineering, Oracle. “With Oracle Cloud Lift Services, customers can take advantage of Oracle’s experts to guide their migrations and get their critical workloads successfully running on OCI. This is the same technical team that has helped many of the world’s largest organizations manage some of the most complex migrations.”
The latest additions to Oracle Cloud Lift Services include capabilities to help customers design and migrate data lakehouse and AI-enabled application environments. To speed big data migrations, a new partnership with WANdisco, a leader in distributed computing, will enable organizations with vast production datasets to access WANdisco LiveData Migrator. WANdisco LiveData Migrator is a fully automated cloud migration solution that moves HDFS data and Hive metadata to the cloud without taking the data offline. The LiveData Migrator can deliver large data sets to the cloud up to 38 times faster than manual migration methods, saving customers time, money, and resources.
