Enterprise customers use FlashGrid engineered cloud systems with Linux OS for running mission-critical Oracle databases, including clustered Oracle RAC databases, in AWS, Azure, and GCP clouds. The databases typically stay in production for multiple years with non-stop 365x24x7 operation. Minimizing any disruptive changes that might affect database uptime is important in such environments.
Both RHEL and Oracle Linux 8 operating systems offer support through 2029. With Oracle Database 19c extended support available through 2027, new database deployments with FlashGrid can now have six years of stable IaaS-based platform without requiring major upgrades of the OS or the database.
“This is a perfect time to migrate Oracle databases from on-premises to the cloud and not worry about major upgrades for the next six years,” said Art Danielov, CEO and CTO FlashGrid.
