Oracle on the Cloud with Lightbits

Up to 4x faster on AWS and Azure and with greater cost‑efficiency than other native cloud storage solutions.

Why Choose Lightbits to Power Your Oracle Database on the Cloud?

Lightbits makes Oracle on the cloud better than ever by exceeding the performance limits of native cloud solutions delivering up to 4x more IOPs than native cloud storage on AWS or Azure, offering enterprise data services included in the license, and predictable low cost for IO-intensive workloads. With Lightbits you can migrate your Oracle workloads on AWS or Azure cost-efficiently and with equivalent performance that you are used to on-premises for a better Oracle experience on the cloud.

Lower and Predictable Costs.

Pay up to 2.5X less than native cloud storage solutions. Deploy fewer instances and save on licensing costs. Right-size your storage on the cloud and only pay for instances used instead of provisioned IOPS or throughput.

High Performance.

High IOPs/low latency volumes can support higher Oracle transactions per second (TPS) and improve application performance, so there’s no need to pay for high-performance EBS volumes with provisioned IOPS. Enjoy instance snapshots and restores with no additional cost.

Flexibility.

Lightbits license portability between on-premises and public cloud(s). Improve performance by scaling the storage cluster.

Implementation Platform

Lightbits for Oracle on Azure

Storage will affect how well your Oracle tasks run, how reliable they are, and how much they cost. Understanding the choices of available storage options and their performance capabilities is the key to successfully migrating Oracle to Azure VMs.
