All Clouds Are Not The Same

Clouds are not ubiquitous. Whether Amazon, Azure, Oracle IaaS, Claremont Cloud or another Cloud, it’s essential to understand the real differences, opportunities and risks offered by different Clouds. It’s time to understand your business case for moving Oracle databases to Cloud and focus on your organisation’s core strategy.

In our whitepaper, we reveal the hidden dangers you need to watch out for when choosing a Cloud provider, particularly for Oracle software, and we explain how to avoid them. This is based on Claremont’s extensive experience of migrating customers’ Oracle software to Cloud and our expertise in Oracle’s policies for Cloud licensing. For example, did you know that hosting Oracle in Amazon or Azure may at least double your cost of licensing Oracle database software?

Your organisation will have specific needs and it’s crucial that you have a provider that understands your circumstances. Let’s reframe the Cloud conversation from marketing generalisations to technical requirements, service and ‘value add’.
