Why migrate to cloud?

Licensing Costs






I've already got some Oracle licenses and I'm not sure how best to utilise these in the Cloud?


Public Cloud at its core is about changing the way in which we consume and provision IT resources; that’s the fundamental shift it provides, and this should also translate to licensing.  Public Cloud enables you to either bring your own licenses or potentially purchase them as part of your subscription; however, determining which is best for you isn’t always clear cut. 

DSP are an Oracle Platinum Partner and can help you understand how you can best optimise your license position to maximise new and existing investments in Public Cloud.  

If you’re looking at Oracle licensing and Public Cloud the three key questions you need to ask are: 

  • Can I reduce cost?
  • Can I reduce risk?
  • Can I utilise Oracle products more effectively?



Does it matter which Public Cloud I'm moving to?


Oracle licenses can be migrated to the Public Cloud and we have helped customers move to Oracle Cloud, AWS and Azure.  However, if you’re looking at a single Cloud provider in isolation then you may be interested get the following questions answered:


  • How are Oracle licenses applied in different Public Clouds?
  • Can I compare AWS and OCI in terms of licenses?
  • How can I see the differences in infrastructure and licensing through a single pane of glass?

Should I take my Oracle on-premise licensing to Public Cloud?


Licenses can be migrated to the Public Cloud; these can be utilised for both IaaS and PaaS in multiple Public Clouds. However, the benefit of Oracle Cloud is that you can have the same licensing flexibility as Cloud infrastructure flexibility. 


By purchasing licenses with your Cloud subscription, you can exert more fine-grained control over your license spend rather than term or perpetual commitments.

Why Review Licensing Now?


If you’re undertaking any migration to the Cloud you need to review your licensing position. The key is to ensure that your licensing position matches your infrastructure and growth plans relevant to your specific Public Cloud provider. 


More importantly by reviewing your license position you can potentially learn on ways to reduce license costs and open up more flexibility with the new commercial models available.

I'm not interested in Public Cloud so this isn't relevant to me?
