Oracle Database migration addresses broader IT challenges

If Oracle Database isn’t broken, why fix it? With the launch of Oracle Database 19c, Oracle will raise support fees or even drop support for your current database version. This may expose your business to security threats, an inability to adopt new technologies, and higher costs. Add license compliance struggles, patch management, and an inability to move system resources to match business requirements, and you have a compelling reason to upgrade.

Cisco offers a wide range of infrastructures to ensure the highest performance and availability for your Oracle infrastructure, ranging from hyperconvergence with Cisco HyperFlex to converged infrastructure solutions from NetApp and Pure Storage. We enable software solutions that automatically adjust system resources to meet business changes and tools to monitor unauthorized patches, license and policy compliance, map and monitor your business processes, and help ensure their peak performance. Migration can be a headache, but Cisco can help ensure a happy future!.
