Oracle EBS on Azure: Redefining Enterprise Resource Planning
Migrate, Modernize, and Innovate
A Strategic Path Forward
Are you thinking through these crucial questions as you consider transitioning Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) to Azure Cloud?
- How do I ensure equal or better performance in Azure compared to dedicated hardware running in on-premise data centers?
- How will my licensing be impacted?
- What does support look like?
- How do I design for redundancy and availability?
If Oracle EBS is a cornerstone of your current environment, acknowledging the 2033 deadline for Oracle’s support discontinuation is imperative. Migrating to Azure Cloud offers a strategic path forward.
Azure Cloud seamlessly integrates with Oracle EBS, facilitating a smooth transition. It provides scalability for varying workloads, robust security to safeguard sensitive data, and ensures high availability for continuous access to key applications. It’s a strategic step towards maintaining agility and competitiveness in your business operations.
The migration of Oracle to Azure addresses several challenges commonly faced by enterprises with on-premises Oracle environments:
Redundancy and Availability
Designing on-premises systems for high availability, especially for applications, web services, and databases, can be complex and resource-intensive.
On-premises infrastructure often struggles with the flexibility to scale up or down efficiently in response to fluctuating business needs.
Rapid deployment of services and applications is more challenging in an on-premises setting, often leading to delays in response to business demands.
License and Support Management
When migrating to Azure, it is essential to understand your licensing requirements and ensure that you are compliant with Oracle’s policies. This may involve monitoring the number of vCPUs used and adhering to the licensing terms for your specific Oracle software edition. By being aware of these licensing implications, you can make informed decisions about your cloud migration strategy and ensure compliance with Oracle’s licensing requirements.
Hardware Refresh Needs
On-premises environments frequently require significant hardware and infrastructure updates, which can be costly and disruptive. Many times, for EBS, this requires Oracle RAC or Oracle Exadata which drives the cost up even further.
High Capital Expenditure and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Maintaining an on-premises Oracle environment typically involves substantial capital investment and higher overall costs.
