Oracle has reported growing demand for Oracle Cloud Lift Services, with more than 1,000 global organisations now using the offering to accelerate the migration of mission-critical workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
Oracle’s customers and partners, including Ingersoll Rand, Volvo Group, Suramericana SA, National Pharmacies, Accenture, Cognizant, Infosys, and Syntax, continue to move enterprise and line of business applications, as well as complex integrations, from on-premises and other clouds to OCI.
To support the growing demand and help more organisations take advantage of OCI, Oracle is enhancing the service offering with new capabilities that make it easier for customers to design and migrate their data lakehouse and AI-enabled application environments to OCI.
Launched in March 2021, Oracle Cloud Lift Services provide organisations with a single point of contact for end-to-end technical delivery, remove critical expertise barriers to adopting OCI services, speed time to value, and create faster opportunities to innovate. As part of the offering, businesses receive expert guidance from experienced cloud engineers on planning, architecting, prototyping, and managing cloud migrations—at no additional cost. As a result, customers can move critical workloads in weeks, or even days, instead of months. Additionally, Oracle works with customers until their workloads are in production and provides training on best practices, so customers have the expertise to run their environment independently or work with a ‘day 2’ managed service provider.
Vinay Kumar, senior vice president of North America cloud solutions engineering at Oracle, said: “As an increasing number of organisations look to move their most important enterprise workloads to the cloud, they have found that they want hands-on assistance to make their migrations as quick and seamless as possible. With Oracle Cloud Lift Services, customers can take advantage of Oracle’s experts to guide their migrations and get their critical workloads successfully running on OCI. This is the same technical team that has helped many of the world’s largest organisations manage some of the most complex migrations.”
