Migration strategies

When migrating Oracle workloads there are many considerations such as licensing and maintenance cost, manageability, and commercial off-the-shelf applications that require certifications for Oracle support purposes. Google Cloud provides multiple strategies for your specific migration journey.


To migrate Oracle workloads with specific configurations, Google Cloud offers Bare Metal Solution, where you can simply lift and shift your workloads. Bare Metal Solution provides hardware, hardware support, and integrated billing. This infrastructure is connected to Google Cloud via a dedicated and highly resilient interconnect and connects to all native Google Cloud services with less than 2ms latency.


Keep your core application code and migrate to compatible platforms like Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL or BigQuery to help reduce licensing fees and maintenance costs. You can migrate to an open source database such as Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL that has a certain amount of compatibility with PL/SQL and stored procedure. You can also offload data analytics-centric workloads to SQL-compatible data warehousing solution like BigQuery.


Rewrite your application to take full advantage of cloud-native databases. If your application requires a relational database with global scalability, you can migrate to Cloud Spanner, which provides scalability with industry-leading high availability of 99.999% SLA.
