Oracle databases and related software are often regarded as a very large, complex, and expensive part of a technology estate. Databases are central to cloud migrations, but are still a uniquely challenging undertaking.
Today most organizations want to reduce overhead, drive innovation, and become more agile with a wide variety of databases for their Oracle workloads. From Bare Metal Solution to cloud-native databases such as Cloud SQL or Cloud Spanner, Google Cloud offers infrastructure solutions that enable you to meet the challenge head-on.
There are three primary motivators/reasons for organizations to either migrate or replace Oracle:
They want to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO): Decreasing upfront hardware, software, and maintenance costs (licensing).
They want to easily scale and have high availability: Necessitous apps and systems need reliable and dependable databases that can easily scale with demanding business needs.
They want to simplify management and operation: Lessening data center and database management by leveraging managed infrastructure and managed database services
