Main Benefits for Migrating to Oracle Cloud


OCI causes simplification in many ways, from removing the need to purchase new hardware and maintaining it, to enabling lower TCO and quicker time to value through it's inbuilt automation.


Oracle Cloud has a 'security first approach', leaving you confident that the built-in continuous protection and automated security designed to reduce human error will reduce the overall risk and strengthen your security posture.


Migrating to OCI can reduce the cost of your Oracle licenses with a number of options available. As ever, it's a complex topic, so speak to one of our licensing specialists to understand which model suits your business best.

Hardware Refresh

Hardware can be tiresome; it can experience failure, cause security issues, poor performance and it's expensive to upgrade to the latest version! Oracle Cloud solves those issues.

Data Centre Refresh

If you have issues with provisioning, patching and maintenance and are looking for flexible cost models and reduced complexity, refreshing your data centre to OCI could be the answer.

Modernisation and Consolidation

Is your estate growing beyond your control and you feel it's time to modernise? Modernisation doesn't necessarily mean growth - consolidation is key to maintaining a healthy environment.

DSP-Explorer's Migration Methodology


The first step when migrating our customers to Oracle Cloud is to do an in-depth discovery call. This call will consist of understanding exactly what kind of cloud model will suit your business the best. Whether that's a full migration to OCI, or a partial hybrid, Cloud@Customer approach.

This discovery call will involve one of our senior Oracle DBAs, as well as your dedicated Oracle Account Director so you can understand both the technical and commercial sides of any potential cloud model.

You should leave this stage knowing which approach you'll be taking to cloud as well as other commercial and technical impacts; such as, how it affects your licensing and how to design for redundancy and availability.


With the cloud model now decided, the next stage of the Oracle Cloud Migration process is the actual migration.

The senior DBA who joined your discovery call will stay with you throughout your journey to cloud, and will lead a team of fully certified Oracle DBAs to execute the migration of your environment. The scope of the migration will be different for every migration as every estate is different. However, what is consistent is that with every migration we complete, we ensure to leave the estate fully optimised so that it achieves the highest levels of performance possible.


After a successful migration, the majority of our customers then continue with an Oracle Cloud Managed Service. This entails proactive monitoring of your OCI environment on a 24*7*365 basis, with built in health checks. Allow DSP-Explorer to manage your cloud environment, and in turn you can focus on business critical areas.
