Oracle OpenWorld 2016 (OOW16) was held in San Francisco from September 18th through the 22nd with a reported 50K+ attendees. The conference featured more than 2,500 sessions and 3,000 speakers. As President of CommitDBA services, I focused in all platforms surrounding the Oracle 12c database stack and Oracle cloud platform. This blog along with four other blogs presents ten important and key takeaways from Oracle OpenWorld 2016.
Oracle maturity in the cloud platform continues to evolve rapidly every year. Oracle announced that their cloud conversion of the Oracle enterprise Application suite of products is nearly complete after 10 years of re-design, development and migration to the Oracle cloud. In 2016, with Oracle’s now very mature cloud platform offerings, customers can choose the environment that fits their business needs best. This may include cloud offerings such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), or Software as a Services (SaaS) for Oracle Applications.
For those organizations which have built internal Java apps that are designated to be moved to the cloud, Oracle has developed an online tool to make it easier to do so. At OpenWorld, Oracle announced the AppToCloud tool and migration process. What does AppToCloud automation provide?
- Quick migration of Java applications to cloud.
- Easy migration of database to cloud.
- Easy migration of WebLogic to cloud.
- Easy to add Data Guard for replication and HA purposes.
There are several steps to follow for the on-premise work that includes:
- Downloading and installing the AppToCloud tooling.
- Running a health check on the source domain.
- Exporting the source domain for uploading.
- Uploading to Oracle cloud.
Once uploaded, provisioning a new instance is necessary via the AppToCloud option that is available through a Web UI.
ConclusionFor those organizations wanting to move their Oracle Java apps to Oracle cloud with a process that provides real-time automation and simplistic steps for on-premise to cloud migration, the AppToCloud tool provides the seamless ability to do so without the headaches of a manual process.
