Exploring Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for your JD Edwards on-premise Deployment?

As a CIO, you are always looking for ways to innovate and improve your company’s operations. It can be difficult to know what the best solutions are when it comes to infrastructure. Oracle is pushing their Cloud Infrastructure as a way to host JD Edwards on-premise deployments. In fact today, they offered financial incentives to make the switch. But is it ready for prime time yet? In this post we will explore if Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the way forward.

What is JD Edwards EnterpriseOne?

What is Oracle Cloud Infrastructure exactly?

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a public cloud that provides on-demand, self-service access to compute power and storage.

Where are the datacenters supporting OCI?

  • Some of the OCI services are not available in all regions like Brazil. *3
  • The Geo Redundancy is weak especially in EMEA and Africa. *3

Are their any reported regional limitations?

Benefits Oracle gives you for migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

It’s designed for high availability with RTO < 4 hours and RPO < 4 hours. You get much greater resiliency in the primary datacenter than you can achieve on premises. Rapid in-place technology refresh & patching, proactive costs and usage monitoring, near instant scaling up or down, federated identity with your existing systems – all these features are available at your fingertips.

With fast provisioning time for new JD Edwards environments, it’s easy to set up new applications quickly without having to worry about hardware procurement delays or vendor lock-in. And if you need more capacity? Simply request it from within the console and we’ll do the rest!

Drawbacks of Migrating

  • The UI console is complicated and needs some work. It is not intuitive.
  • Self help resources are minimal and are not always easy to understand.
  • Integration with other tools is painful.
  • The support is not that great.
  • You need Oracle 3rd party support to install it. 
  • It can actually be expensive.
  • Errors are vague. It is difficult to troubleshoot issues.
  • Load balancing has limited functionality.
  • There have been malware attacks
