For over a year I’ve been researching cloud migration best practices. Consistently there was one red flag that trips me that I’m viewing recommended migration paths. No matter what you read, just about all of them include the following high level steps:
Below talks about my experience trying out Azure and Oracle cloud for the very first time (and at the same time).
So last night I tried for the very 1st time the Azure and Oracle Cloud. Here, I just like to share my experience. BTW I am a big fan of DigitalOcean because of its user friendly interface, very fast to setup (end to end 2 minutes w/ few button clicks), and fantastic community and HOWTOs (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/). If I have to choose a cloud dev environment provider I would still use DigitalOcean.
Now, being a newbie on both these platforms. I’m looking for a similar experience as DigitalOcean.
The cloud experience comparison is broken down to 3 categories:

It eliminates the costs and complexities of provisioning hardware and managing servers, storage devices, and network infrastructure; it gives you more compute capacity per dollar without upfront capital investment; and you gain opportunities for innovation through easier access to new technologies, such as advanced analytical capabilities.

I mentioned in a previous post, the whole look and feel of Microsoft Azure has been rejigged. As a result, I had to do a run through of the SQL Server DBaaS stuff to update the screen shots in and old article on the subject.
Since I was doing that, I figured I might as well do a video for my YouTube channel.
I also updated the associated article.
I love working for Oracle. I haven’t found a company with better work/life balance, better benefits or wide variety of technical products for one to learn from. As we move into the world of cloud, there is one thing that I would like to ask Santa for- access to the Oracle cloud.
The title of this post is taken from tweet I saw a few weeks ago and it keeps coming back to haunt me, so I thought I would comment on it.
Let me start by saying I don’t have any context as to why the tweeter thought people were showing Azure so much love. From my perspective, I kind-of like Azure and I think it is what my employer will end up using, but I’m not a crazed fan-boy about it.
I’ve been playing around with running databases in the cloud recently. It’s quite simplistic stuff, just to get a feel for it and investigate the possibilities of using it for some projects at work. Here’s what I’ve got so far.
