There is no "one size fits all" strategy to Oracle migrations.
Many organizations have significantly reduced their Oracle database costs across a wide range of applications using a variety of strategies. You too can benefit from the experience of our customers by using one of these popular cost saving strategies:
New LOB Applications
Database industry experts from Curt Monash to Gartner Group advise that most new home-grown business applications can be cost-effectively deployed using open source databases. EDB Postgres Advanced Server provides deep Oracle compatibility, allowing DBAs and developers to implement new applications quickly, without any training.
Replication for Reporting and BI
Query, reporting and BI activities can significantly degrade the performance of OLTP applications. Many organizations address this dilemma using database replication. EDB Postgres Advanced Server's Oracle replication server provides real-time data warehousing at a fraction of the cost of Oracle's replication solutions, eliminating OLTP performance problems while delivering time critical information to business stakeholders.
Migrating non-Mission Critical Applications
Organizations that need to systematically replace Oracle databases often begin by migrating non-mission critical applications because they can achieve rapid cost savings while proving the feasibility of their migration strategies. EDB engineers frequently perform low-cost Oracle Migration Assessments on existing Oracle applications to help customers quickly determine which databases can be migrated in the shortest time, at the lowest risk. With our Oracle Migration Factory, we provide customers with an easy, reliable, low-cost services solution to migrate the selected applications.
Migrating Mission Critical Applications
Driven by M&A and consolidation activities, some organizations need to migrate large-scale mission critical applications to less expensive infrastructures. EDB Postgres Advanced Server combines deep Oracle compatibility with a proven, high-performance OLTP database foundation to support the most demanding Oracle migration needs. Further, EDB's Oracle consultants and domain experts apply our best practices methodologies to ensure that complex migrations are achieved the first time.
There is no better way to reduce Oracle's grip on your organization while still preserving your investments in people, training, and applications than EDB Postgres Advanced Server.
