About October Meeting

Options for Running Your Oracle Workloads on AWS

This month, Effectual’s Field CTO, Tim Sylvester and Solutions Architect, Glenn Rowe, will be joining us to discuss options for running your Oracle Workloads on AWS.

Enterprises looking to modernize technology can save money by using AWS as they build new applications and retire legacy solutions. When planning your cloud migration to AWS, your organization can significantly reduce TCO, freeing up resources to focus on the enterprise’s core mission and not in managing servers and buildings. In addition, the hyper-scale, breadth of services and level of automation in AWS can achieve incremental savings, and over time, significant cost optimization. When you deploy enterprise solutions in AWS, you can retire expensive legacy infrastructure, reduce costs, gain agility through automation, and free resources to drive innovation, as opposed focusing on undifferentiated work.
