  • Move into the
    cloud with Quest

    Moving house can be a stressful time, from deciding on a house to the actual move, it’s one important decision after another.

    And it’s the same when a business decides to move to the cloud.

    Do you have customers moving their infrastructure or database to the cloud? Are they unsure of what to expect and how to make sure the migration goes smoothly?

    Quest offers solutions that support your customers on their move to, and management of, the cloud to take some of that stress away. They can help with the preparation of business data before the move, planning of the move, the migration itself and making sure everything works perfectly in the new environment.


  • Decision

    Deciding on a new place is an important decision. It has to be the right size and offer the right accommodation to ensure it is the right fit. It’s the same for businesses moving to the cloud.

    Questions to think about beforehand include:

    • Can I afford to move? / What new environment can I afford?
    • What benefits am I gaining?
    • What is needed for the move?
    • How can I make the process as easy as possible?

  • Foglight Evolve Cloud
    A next-gen infrastructure monitoring solution that ensures businesses get the maximum value from their IT environment and spend. It compares costs of multiple public and private clouds while offering in-depth analysis of current workloads on-prem or in the cloud. This ensures that no matter where the environment is held it is constantly optimised with regards to price and performance, cutting out cloud related spend spiral while maximising performance.

  • Preparation

    Preparing for the move is almost as daunting as the move itself. Making sure everything is moved safely and securely is the main priority.

    It’s also time to get building and contents insurance for the new property to ensure that there are no worries over something breaking.

    For businesses, the backups that they create before moving to the cloud ensures that data can be recovered in case the migration doesn't go as planned.

  • Benchmark Factory
    Before migrating an Oracle database, a Database Administrator needs to assess the workload performance difference between the on-premises database and the database in the cloud.

    Foglight for Databases highlights performance differences between on-premises and in the cloud Oracle instances. It further allows the DBA to determine which part of the Oracle cloud instance is being stressed the most and highlights bottlenecks so they can quickly be resolved and helps reduce cloud service subscription bills.

  • Move

    The move itself is the most stressful stage. Firstly, making sure everything arrives at the new place safe and secure and then unpacking and finding the right spot for it. When everything is finally moved, it is time to get used to the new space.

    Migrating a business is just as stressful. Is everything going to work in the new environment? Does everyone have access to the files and programs they need? And did everything migrate correctly? Making sure your customers have the right tools, will make this step hassle free and less complicated.
