Client Success Story – Amazon RDS

Challenge

State government department had previously gone through an Oracle audit, resulting in the purchase of expensive Oracle Database Appliances running Oracle Enterprise Edition software.

Solution

Following a Cloud Database Readiness Assessment, it was determined that the organization could move to RDS Oracle with License Included. They were also able to move to Tomcat on AWS rather than the Oracle proprietary application server.

Results & Benefits

  • Retired expensive Oracle Database Appliances
  • Migrated from Oracle Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition 2 in RDS Oracle for significant savings
  • Shifted Oracle license to Amazon RDS for Oracle, eliminating the need for direct software or hardware agreements with Oracle
  • Reduced ongoing support needed so their IT staff could focus on servicing end users
