DB Migration to OCI using Transportable Tablespaces - Hari Muthuswamy, Guardian Eagle

This month, Guardian Eagle's CTO, Hari Muthuswamy, will be joining us to share a case study on how to migrate a database from on-prem to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Just to make things more interesting, Hari will be using the Cross Platform Transportable Tablespace (XTTS) method to demonstrate how you can migrate between very disparate environments. This presentation will cover the various aspects of the migration process, starting with the factors that influenced the decision to use the XTTS method in the first place. Hari will detail the nuances of the scripts he used, steps followed, and the challenges he faced.
