Global Oracle Practice Lead
Migrating Oracle to Azure is the easiest because there are no database services available. You migrate the database to Azure IaaS. When going to AWS, there are two options – EC2 or RDS. Within RDS, SE license included or not, and EE. When it comes to OCI, the choices are even wider, and you have the option to bring your own license (BYOL). Let's discuss the various OCI database services and choose the right database service for your workload. Learn about the Oracle database on Virtual Machine, Bare Metal, Autonomous Database, Dedicated Exadata, and Cloud at your data center. I will explain the various options to run Oracle DB on OCI, migration options, cost differences, and when a certain service adds value.

What skills do you need to be a successful Oracle DBA to support Oracle database in the cloud (OCI/AWS/Azure)? What certifications should you aim for? Where do you get the training?
