Oracle Cloud Adoption Framework
Intelligence Driven Cyber Security Operations
Oracle Cloud Adoption Framework
As of the end of 2021, over 67% of enterprises had already adopted cloud-based infrastructure, and many others were in the process of transitioning to the cloud. This shift is primarily driven by the rapid increase in data generation and the need for digitization in business operations. Traditional approaches to IT infrastructure are no longer sufficient in the digital age, and periodic fixes are no longer effective. Legacy IT management tools lack the flexibility required for scalability and agility, which are essential for modern businesses to remain competitive.
Furthermore, the explosion of data in the digital market has significantly increased the cost and complexity of data center storage. Enterprises that continue to rely on legacy systems and data management solutions put a considerable strain on their existing capabilities, hindering their ability to extract value from data. Therefore, transitioning to the cloud has become a necessity for businesses, with many organizations looking to move applications and databases out of their on-premises data centers.
CertCube Labs offers a comprehensive solution for Oracle Cloud Migration. Their fully-managed service ensures a high-performing, self-service experience for migrating databases to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). CertCube Labs leverages automated tools, including Oracle’s own tools and their proprietary ones, to streamline and optimize the process of migrating on-premises databases to the Oracle Cloud. This migration is achieved with minimal downtime, thanks to tools like Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA)-approved tools and Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM), ensuring a seamless transition.
To tackle the challenges posed by this migration journey, CertCube Labs recommends using their CAF Approach (CertCube Accelerated Framework). This approach helps enterprises identify the obstacles they may face during cloud migration, determine appropriate actions to overcome them, and embark on a successful cloud journey with confidence.
FIVE stages of the Oracle Cloud Adoption Framework
Define and Design the Correct Strategy
In the crucial initial stage of our cloud migration process, CertCube Labs closely examines your business landscape to understand its key drivers and success factors. We work alongside your leaders to determine the optimal timing for transitioning to the cloud, taking into account factors like mission-critical technology end-of-support and regulatory compliance changes. Based on this understanding, we design a migration plan that encompasses cost optimization, agility, enhanced performance, stringent security and compliance adherence, and improved customer engagement. We then construct a compelling business case by showcasing financial advantages such as cost reduction, asset recovery, and operational efficiency. Finally, CertCube Labs formulates a clear cloud strategy in line with your business vision and crafts an adoption plan to realize your specific desired outcomes.
Plan the Journey
CertCube Labs plays a pivotal role in turning cloud adoption strategies into actionable plans for enterprises. Guided by the cloud adoption plan, our team of experts seamlessly integrates technical tasks with desired business outcomes.
In Step 1, aligned with the Oracle Cloud Adoption Framework, CertCube Labs assesses the current IT landscape, covering aspects such as Network, Security, Applications, OS, and Databases. This comprehensive analysis includes dependency mapping to identify potential points of failure and optimize recovery paths.
In Step 2, our migration specialists craft a detailed migration blueprint encompassing strategy, methodology, and project milestones, ensuring a well-structured path for the migration process.
Getting Ready for the Migration
CertCube Labs is responsible for formulating the landing zone design, which includes the intricate planning of network infrastructure, security protocols, compute resources, storage configurations, security controls, cloud platform operations, and governance policies. This blueprint is meticulously tailored to adhere to the organization’s standardized operating procedures concerning security and governance.
Adopt the Right Migration Strategy
CertCube Labs simplifies the decision-making process for modernizing older applications by offering a comprehensive approach known as the 6Rs. These options include:-
- Repurchase, where enterprises transition from on-prem licenses to cloud-based versions of the same software;
- Rehost,which involves migrating existing workloads to the cloud ecosystem
- Replatform, a similar process to rehosting but with optimizations for cloud performance
- Refactor/Re-Architect, a comprehensive overhaul of on-prem applications, databases, and workloads to adapt them to the cloud;
- Retire, identifying and eliminating redundant and costly applications and finally.
- Retain, allowing businesses to keep high-performing legacy applications when necessary.
CertCube Labs facilitates this intuitive selection and innovation to modernize applications effectively.
