Oracle Database in Amazon EC2 using AWS Backup and EFS for backup and restore

Using AWS Backup and Oracle RMAN for backup/restore of Oracle databases on Amazon EC2: Part 2

Customers running Oracle databases on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) often take database and schema backups using Oracle native tools like Data Pump and Recovery Manager (RMAN) to satisfy data protection, disaster recovery (DR), and compliance requirements. A priority is to reduce backup time as the data grows exponentially and recover sooner in case […]

Augmenting VMware Cloud on AWS Workloads with Native AWS services

VMware Cloud on AWS allows you to quickly migrate VMware workloads to a VMware-managed Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) running in the AWS Cloud and extend your on-premises data centers without replatforming or refactoring applications. You can use native AWS services with Virtual Machines (VMs) in the SDDC, to reduce operational overhead and lower your Total […]

Scaling RStudio/Shiny using Serverless Architecture and AWS Fargate

Data scientists use RStudio server as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to develop, publish, and share interactive web dashboards built on Shiny Server. Although it is possible to use virtual server infrastructure in the cloud to run R workloads, containerization offers significant operational benefits. Migrating R workloads into a serverless model in AWS, customers can […]

Optimizing a Lift-and-Shift for Cost Effectiveness and Ease of Management

Lift-and-shift is the process of migrating a workload from on premise to AWS with little or no modification. A lift-and-shift is a common route for enterprises to move to the cloud, and can be a transitionary state to a more cloud native approach. This is the second blog post in a three-part series which investigates […]

Optimizing a Lift-and-Shift for Performance

Many organizations begin their cloud journey with a lift-and-shift of applications from on-premise to AWS. This approach involves migrating software deployments with little, or no, modification. A lift-and-shift avoids a potentially expensive application rewrite but can result in a less optimal workload than a cloud native solution. For many organizations, a lift-and-shift is a transitional […]
