Migrating Oracle databases to Amazon Web Services

How to migrate Oracle databases to AWS using Quest tools to minimize downtime, reduce database licensing costs, monitor performance and replicate safely


As an enterprise database administrator, you've likely examined your infrastructure and determined that you must provide better scalability to keep capacity in line with demand, reduce spending on capital expenses, simplify and speed up database provisioning, and tighten spending on the variable costs of providing IT services.

Shortly after you join the growing number of DBAs tasked with moving Oracle databases to AWS. Here, you confront several questions ranging from which of your Oracle databases are best suited for migration to AWS, to which tools are needed to replicate Oracle data between on-premises infrastructure and AWS.

This whitepaper guides DBAs through the process of database migration from Oracle to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), providing a clear picture of how to migrate infrastructure to AWS, as well as an understanding of the tools that will ensure successful migration.
