How Amazon.com got the best of all database worlds
Untangling from Oracle? It's easier said than done. Amazon was born long before AWS, in an era when monolithic, on-premises database solutions like Oracle still made the most sense for storing and managing data at enterprise scale. "It was the same situation for us as it is for so many enterprises," says Thomas Park, senior manager of solutions architecture for Consumer Business Data Technologies at Amazon.com, who helped lead the migration project. "Oracle was both our biggest reason for, and most significant obstacle against, shifting onto AWS."
Amazon.com realized that the on-premises database solution it used for inventory management could no longer keep up with the company’s requirements.
Amazon.com chose to migrate to Amazon Aurora on the AWS Cloud, which enabled greater performance, scalability, availability, and lowered cost. Watch this on-demand webinar to see how the migration team:
- Completed migration framework in only three months
- Moved more than 200 external services with their dependencies
- Meet its goal of a maximum of two hours of downtime per fulfilment center 100% of the time
It’s time to break free from legacy databases and embrace the power of the cloud. Watch the webinar now to see how the Amazon.com inventory management team did it—and how you can too.
