Our Client was running their Enterprise LMS (Learning Management System) backed by an Oracle database with several Enterprise and Forture 500 companies. They wanted to expand their offerings beyond Enterprises based on their traditional data center and decided to migrate their system to AWS so that the LMS offerings could be easily used by SMB and mid market segments. They calculated their costs for cloud-based offering with Oracle to be too high and opted for migrating to AWS RDS PostgreSQL instead. They hired Cloudly to migrate their database to AWS RDS PostgreSQL and asked their development team to collaboratively migrate their entire platform to AWS.
To find best solution approach for migration, Cloudly did a full assessment on five different Oracle databases from Client’s Enterprise LMS. The table below represent the outcome of initial assessment phase. Based on the complexity of the databases below are the four major approaches we selected for database migration, using Cloudly Data Migrator (CDM).
