Move from Oracle to Azure SQL Database Services

Are you looking to move away from an Oracle database environment? Complex contracts, high cost, hidden costs, integration issues, and inflexibility are the downside to maintaining Oracle databases. For these reasons, we are seeing a growing interest in transitioning away from Oracle. More often organisations are seeking a more economical and flexible cloud destination for their database services.

Microsoft’s Azure SQL Database is the clear alternative

Comparatively, Azure SQL is a clear destination choice. Especially when considering the platform’s lower running costs, greater integration capabilities, and ultimate flexibility. However, there are also significant technical reasons to migrate from Oracle to Azure SQL:

  1. Security – Microsoft SQL Server has been rated the most secure database platform by the National Institute of Standards and Technology for the last 7 years.
  2. Data Analytics – Microsoft SQL Server is the only database platform that has built-in artificial intelligence. No additional hardware or servers required.
  3. Fast and Powerful – Microsoft SQL Server is ranked first (Oracle is ranked fifth) in the TPC-H 10TB non-clustered results, a standard benchmark for data warehousing workloads.
  4. Advanced Database SystemGartner positioned the Microsoft DBMS furthest in completeness of vision and highest for ability to execute.
  5. Cost-Effectiveness – Pay as you go and consumption-based cloud subscriptions. Furthermore, SQL Server is a feature complete data platform. No hidden costs and no paying for additional features (unlike Oracle).
