White Paper: You Aren’t Stuck—A Roadmap for Migrating from Oracle to a Scale-Out Architecture
December 15, 2016
Many businesses are looking to take the next step forward in their business through the integration of modern applications and cutting-edge functionality, such as machine learning or real-time data processing. For a lot of companies, the question comes down to: can they power these future applications with their current Oracle database? And if not, is it plausible for them to be migrating from Oracle considering the cost, compatibility issues and possible loss of data?
With extensive investments in the systems and skill sets required to run an Oracle database and power applications, companies look at the prospect of migrating from Oracle as challenging, or maybe even impossible. But there are ways to migrate from Oracle to a scale-out architecture, and in the latest white paper from CITO Research, “You Aren’t Stuck—A Roadmap for Migrating from Oracle to a Scale-Out Architecture,” companies can begin to see a path forward.
This whitepaper describes why organizations are looking to migrate from Oracle to a scale-out architecture, such as the Splice Machine open-source SQL RDBMS, and details what must be considered before making this choice.
Here are a few reasons why organizations are switching to scale-out, Apache Hadoop® based architectures:
- To achieve scalability and elasticity
- To reduce costs
- To use open source tools to build big data apps
- To gain access to machine learning libraries
