When businesses adopt a cloud-first strategy, they are expecting the cloud to help drive operational simplicity, flexibility, and freedom in technology choice. Another benefit is the ability to free IT resources to work on driving innovation by reducing the need to manage internal infrastructure to support their applications.
But someone still needs to manage the cloud infrastructure and the databases in it. Companies therefore need to consider the skills on their team, and if they are lacking, then someone needs to replace them. In these cases, a fully managed cloud database-as-a-service (DBaaS) has become a popular option for getting to the cloud while reducing the IT maintenance burden.
At the same time, many businesses are also seeking to reduce database costs by switching to an open source database such as Postgres. If you’re using Oracle, you’re likely wondering if it is really possible to move to the cloud and switch database technologies at the same time. What does this take? How do I migrate off my current on premises Oracle database to Postgres?
