Oracle announces the launch of new Oracle Cloud Lift Services that gives Oracle customers expanded access to technical tools and cloud engineering resources to quickly migrate workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). These resources are available at no additional cost to all existing and new Oracle Cloud customers worldwide.
Vinay Kumar, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, states that, “Our customers want a seamless path to the cloud with the right guidance, solution architecture, and hands-on help we can provide. Oracle Cloud Lift Services is just one of several changes we are implementing to accelerate customer success on Oracle Cloud.”
Oracle’s new program provides a single point of contact for all technical delivery and removes critical expertise barriers for adoption of OCI services, speeding time to value and creating faster opportunities to innovate. With Oracle Cloud Lift Services, customers get access to Oracle cloud engineers and premier technical services that have accelerated migrations to OCI for enterprise customers including Seattle Sounders FC, Cargill and Rice University. As part of the program, customers will have access to cloud engineering resources for activities ranging from performance analysis, application architecture, hands on migrations and go-live support. Oracle will work with customers until their workloads are in production and help train their staff on best practices so they have the expertise to run the environment moving forward. Customers and partners are already seeing value in this new program and are getting through migrations faster, with more of their IT budget intact for more valuable operational services and major digital transformation projects.
“Oracle Cloud Lift Services together with Infosys Cobalt cloud offerings help our joint customers accelerate the work of migrating to the cloud and modernizing their landscape to drive faster business results. As a partner, we ensure client success through outcome-driven transformation programs that build differentiated capabilities to help our clients become resilient, agile and competitive,” said Gopikrishnan Konnanath, SVP & Service Offering Head, Oracle Services, Infosys.
Seattle Sounders FC, the American professional soccer club, has also realized benefits from Oracle Cloud Lift Services.
Rice University uses Oracle Cloud Lift Services to help deploy Open Nebula on Oracle Cloud which involves technical work such as the deployment of large-scale Kubernetes clusters running on GPUs. This is one of the largest open-source projects the university IT team is involved in.
