Oracle EBS Lift and Shift Methods to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure OCI

The "lift and shift" approach to migrating Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) involves moving the existing EBS environment to the cloud with minimal changes to the application architecture. The goal of this approach is to quickly move the application to the cloud with minimal disruption to business operations.

There are two common methods for performing a lift and shift migration of EBS to OCI:

Virtual Machine (VM) Import: This method involves creating a virtual machine image of the existing EBS environment and importing it into OCI. This method is ideal for organizations that want to quickly move their EBS environment to the cloud with minimal changes to the existing infrastructure.

Database Refresh: This method involves creating a new database in OCI and refreshing it with data from the existing EBS environment. This method is ideal for organizations that want to take advantage of the managed database services offered by OCI and want to minimize the amount of time required to migrate their data.

Regardless of the method chosen, organizations should perform thorough testing and validation before and after the migration to ensure that the EBS environment is running correctly in the cloud. Additionally, organizations should have a plan in place for managing and updating the EBS environment once it has been migrated to OCI.

EBS Cloud Manager

Oracle EBS lift and shift to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is possible using Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager, which automates the migration of Oracle EBS databases and applications to OCI. The Cloud Manager provides a full suite of innovative software solutions including an automated database migration as well as an application migration. To lift and shift Oracle EBS to OCI, users can: Use the database migrations capabilities offered by Cloud Manager. Configure and deploy the Oracle EBS applications in OCI. Perform post-migration steps such as database cloning and performance tuning. The database cloning feature helps users quickly make a copy of their Oracle EBS instance, thereby accelerating the migration process. Performance tuning procedures help to evaluate the performance of the system and optimize query processing speed and reduce resource utilization. The Cloud Manager also includes a comprehensive set of tools and technologies for managing cloud infrastructure. These include services for monitoring, provisioning, and managing cloud resources. In addition to saves users time, cost, and effort, the lift and shift method helps organizations move their Oracle EBS applications faster while ensuring a low risk of downtime and data loss. This process also provides enhanced security while keeping all applications and data in the same cloud.

Manual Method

This method to OCI is a process that can help customers move their existing on-premises Oracle EBS applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This process is designed to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud, with minimal disruption to applications and users. The Lift and Shift method involves moving the entire EBS environment as is, without making any changes to its architecture. The process begins by making a full backup of the source system and then restoring it to a newly provisioned OCI environment. After doing so, the application can be tested in the cloud to ensure that it is working as expected. If any customisation's need to be made to accommodate the cloud environment, they can be done at this stage. Finally, the application is then connected to the customer's existing OCI services, such as storage and networking, to complete the move to the cloud. As part of the process, the customer should also review their version of Oracle EBS and update, as necessary, to ensure compatibility with the OCI platform.

Zero Migration Downtime Tool

Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM) OCI is a cloud migration tool offered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure that helps organisations migrate large amounts of data and applications from on-premises environments to the cloud. It provides a secure, reliable, and automated way of transferring large volumes of data in an efficient and cost-effective manner. ZDM OCI automates the process of transferring data and applications with minimal manual intervention or assistance and ensures a complete and consistent data migration process. Additionally, ZDM OCI has built-in monitoring and reporting capabilities that are available to administrators, allowing them to track the data transfer process and access real-time migration results.
