Exploring the Oracle and Google Cloud Partnership Announcement with Nelson Calero

In part 3 of our series on the Oracle-Google Cloud partnership (based on episode 78 of the Datascape podcast), we explored Oracle ACE Aishwarya Kala’s view of the partnership. In this blog, we’re exploring Oracle ACE and Internal Principal Consultant Nelson Calero’s perspective and observations—be sure to keep reading to uncover his early takeaways.

1. Easier migrations: improved migrations of Oracle workloads to Google Cloud

“If you decide to deploy Oracle database as a service from Google Cloud, the database will be actually running in OCI.”

Nelson emphasizes that the partnership makes it straightforward for customers to run Oracle databases on Google Cloud while the actual database infrastructure resides in OCI. This approach simplifies the migration process, ensuring that businesses can leverage their existing Oracle setups without undergoing complex transitions.

Why does it matter? Easier migration means businesses can quickly and efficiently move their Oracle workloads to Google Cloud, minimizing downtime and reducing the risk of data loss. Oracle Database@Google Cloud will be available at the highest level of Oracle Database and network performance. This ensures seamless migration and the ability to harness the strengths of both cloud providers, leading to more stable and reliable cloud operations.

2. Integration and operations: enhanced integration possibilities and simplified operations

“A simplified purchasing and contracting experience via Google Cloud Marketplace that enables customers to purchase Oracle database services using their existing Google Cloud commitments and leverage their existing Oracle license benefits including Bring Your Own License (BYOL) and discount programs such as Oracle Support Rewards (OSR).”

Nelson also discusses how the partnership offers improved integration and operational simplicity. Customers can now purchase Oracle database services directly through the Google Cloud Marketplace, utilizing their existing Google Cloud commitments and Oracle license benefits. This streamlined process simplifies procurement, contracting, and overall cloud operations.

Why does it matter? Enhanced integration and simplified operations reduce administrative overhead, making it easier for businesses to manage their cloud environments. Customers can leverage their existing Oracle license benefits, including BYOL and discount programs like OSR. This translates to significant cost savings and operational efficiency, enabling businesses to optimize their cloud strategies effectively.

3. Industry trends in cloud migration and how Pythian supports businesses

“So you are going to pay Oracle for that... This opens up a lot more options.”

He highlights how this partnership aligns with current trends in cloud migration, where businesses seek flexible and multi-cloud strategies. By enabling Oracle workloads to run seamlessly on Google Cloud, the partnership opens new possibilities for enterprises to diversify their cloud deployments.

Why does it matter? Understanding industry trends allows businesses to stay ahead of the curve. Oracle Interconnect for Google Cloud will enable customers to deploy general-purpose workloads with no cross-cloud data transfer charges. This flexibility aligns with the growing trend of multi-cloud strategies, allowing businesses to choose the best technologies for their needs. With expertise in both Oracle and Google Cloud, our team is well-positioned to support organizations in navigating these trends. We provide tailored solutions that leverage the strengths of both platforms, ensuring organizations can adopt the most effective cloud strategies for growth and innovation.
