“Application Migration” capability of Oracle Cloud can be used to migrate applications, such as Oracle Java Cloud Service, SOA Cloud Service, and Integration Classic applications, from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Each migration involves a single application movement from a specified source to a specified compartment in OCI. Tags can be added to your resources to organize them accordingly to your business needs. And also it can be added while creating a resource or you can update the resource later with the desired tags.
Application Migration follows a very systematic approach to migrating the applications to OCI. The Workflow of a successful migration process is as follows :
- Complete the prerequisites
- Create a source in Application Migration
- List applications
- Create a migration in Application Migration.
- Configure the migration
- Start the migration
- Complete the post-migration tasks
Applications which are supported for migration with “Application Migration” capability as follows:
- Oracle Java Cloud Service
- Oracle SOA Cloud Service
- Oracle Analytics Cloud – Classic
- Oracle Integration
- Oracle Process Cloud Service
- Oracle Integration Cloud Service
Oracle Cloud has been expanding its footprint significantly, currently, the application migration capability is available in the below regions :
