OCI Database Migration migrates Oracle Databases from on-premises or cloud deployments to OCI. The easy-to-use graphical user experience validates and manages migration workflows. Database Migration transparently uses Zero Downtime Migration, Cloud Premigration Advisor Tool, Data Pump, and GoldenGate services for secure, fault-tolerant, and incremental migrations.
OCI Database Migration (DMS) migrates Oracle databases from on-premises or cloud deployments to OCI. The easy-to-use graphical user experience validates and manages migration workflows. DMS transparently uses Oracle Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM), Cloud Premigration Advisor Tool (CPAT), Oracle Data Pump, and Oracle GoldenGate services for secure, fault-tolerant, and incremental migrations.
OCI Database Migration supports the following database sources and targets. The flexibility of a logical migration allows version upgrades and changes to target platforms.
Migration workflows meet both simple and complex operational requirements without the need for advanced DBA skills. Migrations can run whether applications are online, offline, or across firewalls. For long running migrations, source and target data is always available without impacting source database performance. If migration involves modernization, workflows also enable version upgrades and hardware platform changes.
A comprehensive diagnostic advisor is embedded into the migration workflow. The advisor prioritizes exceptions, suggests resolutions, and generates repair scripts. Users can interactively review the details and either ignore the warnings, exclude source objects, or make repairs. The convenience of this essential step streamlines the migration workflow.
“Customers expect production database migrations to be risk free with minimal downtime. Until OCI Data Migration Service, we had to dedicate our most experienced DBAs to manage the variety of Oracle tools. With OCI DMS, all the complex setup, administration, validation, and workflow needed for zero downtime migrations is automated and happens behind the scenes. Our team needed zero knowledge of GoldenGate or Zero Downtime Migration because DMS manages it transparently.”
