Oracle offers free database migration to IBM Power users


Oracle launched a free database migration program called Exa Your Power Program for its qualified customers.

The offering is aimed to help customers migrate Oracle Database from IBM Power systems to Oracle Engineered Systems using Intel technology.

The Exa Your Power Program is jointly funded by Oracle and Intel.  The program offers qualified customers a free Proof of Concept migration of one or more sample databases, a customized report documenting the migration process and test results and a comprehensive roadmap for modernizing their database environment to Oracle Engineered Systems optimized for Oracle Database.

“Transformation of the enterprise is already underway with the continuous improvements in capabilities, performance per dollar, energy efficiency, and a vast software ecosystem that Intel and Oracle deliver together,” said Raj Hazra, vice president, Data Center Group, general manager, Enterprise and High Performance Computing Platform Group.

“Our companies understand demanding enterprise workloads and have long collaborated to optimize the performance and reliability of Oracle Database on Intel Xeon processors. The Exa Your Power program will make it easier for customers to realize the benefits of moving to Intel architecture.”

Oracle Engineered Systems are software and hardware engineered together to provide a platform for running Oracle Database and customer applications.

Oracle said, since the launch of Oracle Exadata, thousands of customers have moved their Oracle Databases to Oracle Engineered Systems running on Intel architecture.

Separately, the company announced the opening of the Oracle Openworld 2015, a conference, which runs October 25-29.

The event, taking place at 18 locations in San Francisco, is slated to feature over 2,500 sessions, 3,000 speakers, and more than 400 Oracle demos, as well as partner and customer exhibitions.
