If you haven’t moved your database from a traditional server structure to the cloud, 2019 is your year. The time is now.

Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure has gone from Generation 1 to Generation 2, and the pace of change has been incredible. It’s changing so fast that you can’t even keep up. If you’re running a business, your primary concern is your area of business and not database changes, but these changes are big.

With Generation 2, Oracle’s changed the game. We’ve been running their Cloud Infrastructure for a little while now, and for the first time, we can do something that we never could have approached before.

We can take a large enterprise’s data centers from a regular on-site setup to an entirely cloud-based setup. That’s an exciting and scary frontier.

Database administration has changed

A question we often hear in our business is, “Why can’t we do it the way we used to do it?” And it’s a question that’s coming more frequently every year.

With everything moving to the cloud, we’ll be hearing it a lot more. Things are changing—fast. Even going from one generation to the next is a big jump. We’re not just dealing with navigation changes. It’s not just reupholstery. Automation is a big thing. The cloud is a big thing.

Across the industry, we’re seeing a push towards faster and faster iteration, but that comes with a real-world cost for businesses. How do you keep up?

People sometimes think if they put a system and a database on the cloud, it’s all going to work by itself. But that’s not the case.

The easy button doesn’t exist

With the pace of change, businesses are struggling to keep up with all the changes that occur in their database system, even from week to week. That’s where a managed database administration (DBA) solution comes in.

Database administration is more important than ever before, because most businesses don’t have the time to figure out how things work behind the scenes. You can’t just trust that things will run at their best—you have to stay on top of them. And that’s what DBA services are for.

Cloud-based databases don’t make a DBA’s role go away; it just changes. More than anything, when you peel back all those layers, the DBA managed services that LSG Solutions offers do different things. Whether it’s one-time upgrade services or on-demand help, we’re here for you. We can help you worry less about resources and more about the running of your business—the part you actually care about.

The move from physical data centers to the cloud is a sea change for businesses everywhere. Don’t get left behind. Stay ahead of the technological trends with a little help from the people who do it for a living.
