Oracle's new Oracle Cloud Lift Services provide customers with tools and resources to quickly migrate workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. What's more, they are available at no extra charge.

Oracle Cloud Lift Services provide access to Oracle cloud engineers and technical services that have already accelerated migrations to OCI for enterprise customers.

This covers activities including performance analysis, application architecture, hands on migrations and go-live support.

Furthermore, Oracle will help train customers' staff on best practices so they can take control of their operating environment.

Customers who have already used Oracle Cloud Lift Services include US soccer club Seattle Sounders FC (somewhat ironically, as until 2018 the team was sponsored by Microsoft's Xbox), global food corporation Cargill, and Rice University (US).

Rice uses Oracle Cloud Lift Services to help deploy Open Nebula on Oracle Cloud. This involves the deployment of large-scale Kubernetes clusters running on GPUs, and is one of the largest open-source projects the university IT team is involved in.

"We are delighted that this project with Oracle has enabled Oracle and Rice to contribute this resource back to the Open Nebula community. The close collaboration between Oracle technical experts and my team has provided learning opportunities and enabled us to explore new and innovative technical solutions," said Rice University CIO Klara Jelinkova.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure senior vice president Vinay Kumar said "Our customers want a seamless path to the cloud with the right guidance, solution architecture, and hands-on help we can provide.

"Oracle Cloud Lift Services is just one of several changes we are implementing to accelerate customer success on Oracle Cloud."
