Cloud Lift Services: Oracle offers clients to move for free

Oracle has shifted 1,000 workers to focus on Cloud Lift Services over the last nine months

Oracle Corp made an announcement on Wednesday to migrate companies’ most complicated programs to its cloud by offering them its Cloud Lift Services for free as the company tries to catch a new wave of potential cloud-computing clients by aiming to save them time and money.

From in-house digital storage and computing to cloud servers that are leased from Inc.’s Web Services and other providers, the pandemic prompted many businesses and governments to shift.

For persuading organizations that have not made a switch or done so only partially to opt for a move to its, Oracle is counting on its free support.

Over the last six months, over 100 customers have taken advantage of what Oracle is calling its Cloud Lift Services and the program is going to open globally.

Vinay Kumar, a senior vice president at Oracle, told Reuters, “I’ll be surprised if any customer says I don’t need this”.

Oracle has shifted 1,000 workers to focus on Cloud Lift Services over the last nine months, said Kumar. He expects the offer will pay off for Oracle, but he declined to say how much the company has budgeted for it.

Oracle’s expertise in using its own tools efficiently and setting up applications to work smoothly on the speeds transitions of Cloud Lift Services and reduce the risk of customers’ encountering errors, he said.

Rival cloud providers discount transition support but typically only for key customers or those that agree to long-term deals or minimum spending.

Oracle does not require commitments, but the program is limited to what he called the “handful of applications” that would be most difficult for a customer to migrate to Cloud Lift Services and excludes ones requiring a thorough rewrite, he said.

He said, among early testers was a new client, U.S. agribusiness Cargill Inc. With Oracle’s help, Cargill transitioned in weeks, not months.
