Key cloud services help you move data and databases quickly and securely.
Move petabyte-scale datasets to or from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in days instead of weeks or months. Use the console or Command Line Interface (CLI) to initiate the data transfer and order Data Transfer Appliance. Copy your data and ship it to Oracle, where we import it. For data export, we copy your data and ship it back to you. It’s that simple.
There is no cost to transfer data with Oracle's data transfer service (for data export outbound networking fees apply). For qualified customers, we offer the option to migrate their data on secure, high-capacity, Oracle-supplied storage appliances at no cost. You can store up to 150 TB per storage appliance, and multiple appliances per data transfer job, if necessary. Customers also have an option to send their data as files on encrypted commodity disks which are then transferred by Oracle operators to designated customer Object Storage tenancy. After transfer is done, the disks are shipped backed to the customer (disk is only used for data import).
Data is encrypted using AES-256 cipher as you load it onto the transfer appliance. Customers can also encrypt their data using their own encryption keys. When data is transferred to OCI Object Storage for your tenancy, Oracle uses encrypted network connections within our networks, enhancing data security. All data uploaded to Object Storage is encrypted by default using AES-256 encryption.
Zero Downtime Migration - ZDM, enables easy and efficient migration of your on-premises databases to the Oracle Cloud. ZDM leverages Oracle MAA technologies such as Oracle Data Guard and Oracle GoldenGate to minimize or eliminate downtime.
OCI Database Migration provides validated, cross-version, fault-tolerant, and incremental Oracle Database migrations for online and offline use cases. This free and easy-to-use service transparently uses Oracle’s portfolio of enterprise-class database migration tools.
Enterprise Manager Database Migration Workbench allows you to easily move databases workloads to the Autonomous Database leveraging Data Pump.
