Oracle Cloud Infrastructure combines the elasticity and utility of a public cloud with the granular control, security, and predictability of on-premises infrastructure to deliver high performance, high availability, and cost-effective infrastructure services. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure makes it easier for companies like Covanta to provision new services and enhance their own offerings over time.
It took about two months to fully migrate the development, QA, and production environments for the PeopleSoft implementation to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and Covanta says it has seen a 2X performance improvement in the application since the migration was completed. Additionally, the team has greater control over the new environment and can scale the application more easily compared to the managed service model the company previously used.
"Compute resources are actually a lot better from a CPU utilization perspective. It's a huge improvement," said Karish Chowdhury, a cloud architect and manager at Covanta. "The environment is also in our control, so making a change that goes through development, QA, and production is much easier and less time consuming."
