OUR EVENT MAY HAVE FINISHED, BUT THE RACE TO THE CLOUD IS FAR FROM OVER.


Discover why you should consider migrating your business to a Cloud platform.

RACE TO THE CLOUD 2017

Like the explorers of old, we believe that IT leaders today need to demonstrate similar characteristics of boldness, valor and courage if they're to truly innovate and get ahead of the game. We held an event on November 22nd where we brought together industry leading experts and some of our customers to give talks and guidance around the Cloud.


It's widely recognised that there are three leading vendors in the "Race To The Cloud" (Amazon Web Service, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud) and we think there could be a place for any one of them all in your business. Data Intensity are here to help you identify which Cloud solution and provider is best suited to your business.

Going The Extra Mile with Oracle Cloud

In the early days of SACU, our initial business ideas came into being through the use of Oracle APEX and Oracle’s Entry Level database schema cloud. After getting fantastic feedback from students, schools & careers professionals we realised our services needed to highly available and scale to cope with the peak demand of app deadlines & results days within the education sector. It made sense for us to partner with someone who could provide the guidance and expertise to help us solve these technical business challenges. Having heard good things about Data Intensity, we approached them to help us:


• Take best advantage of emerging cloud technologies

• Identify the best managed Cloud solution for our business

• Plan and manage the migration to Oracle DBaaS Cloud

• Provide DBA / system admin services

• Offer 24/7 monitoring and support


Working with DI to manage our technology has enabled us to make our business a success. In the last few years we’ve now seen our personalised ‘Career Cloud’ services used by tens of thousands of young people in hundreds of schools and colleges across the UK and abroad.

Storyteller

We first engaged with Data Intensity to support us in the migration of our supplier-facing applications on to the Oracle Public Cloud in April 2017, and it couldn’t have gone better!


From the very beginning Data Intensity were extremely receptive to our needs as a client. They listened to what we needed, presented options for accelerated delivery and walked us through the project stages meticulously. Once we’d begun work on the migration, our consultant not only went to extra mile to ensure every step of the project was thoroughly planned, designed, built, tested and implemented but also kept us informed every step of the way. He didn’t just help us optimize our solution, he really worked to help us set it up for long term scalability and sustainability. This resulted in the successful delivery of the new platform within 5 months of inception.


The DI team are always willing to go one step beyond what other vendors will do. Establishing this dedication and commitment early on, and then demonstrating it consistently is what we’ve come to expect from Red Stack.


I can’t recommend them enough!

Cost Cutting Through Oracle Cloud Migration

Keeping with our Race To The Poles theme we invited along storyteller and keynote speak Rob Caskie. Rob is a world renowned expert in the Race To The Poles journey around: Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton. 


He recounted the story of the various nations vying to be first to the Pole, as what emerged were epics of human struggle, triumphs of the human spirit and the greatest stories of survival in history.

A New Approach to Managing and Securing your Hybrid Cloud

Cavanti is a Software as a Service company located in California with 300+ customers in 15 countries. Our applications provide practice management solutions to animal practitioners who specialize in alternative treatment modalities. We have always had to be very budget conscious. Data Intensity originally helped us implement our solution on AWS (with Data Intensity focusing on infrastructure and Cavanti on development) using Oracle RDBMS 12.1, Oracle Apex and ORDS - It was an extremely successful partnership. However, there were some limitations with Amazon RDS in terms of available Oracle functionality (e.g. no file system access, data pump, external files, etc). Licensing Oracle on virtual machines with AWS was cost prohibitive and as a result Data Intensity recommended migrating to the Oracle Cloud. We migrated our production instance of Oracle from Amazon RDS to the Oracle Cloud with minimal downtime.


We now run two instances of Oracle Database Cloud Service (DBCS) and also use the Oracle Object Storage for online backups. The Oracle Cloud gives us all the functionality we were missing with Amazon RDS and is far more competitive than AWS from a cost perspective.
