Oracle announced a new rewards program where customers who migrate or move their workloads over to Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) can receive a 25% reduction on their on-premise support costs. For example, if a customer consumes $1M in OCI credits, they will be discounted $250K towards their on-premise support costs. While this may sound great, there is a potential catch. Before enrolling, customers should ensure this is a program they can really take advantage of. Jeff Lazarto, UpperEdge’s Oracle practice leader, discusses the caveats to be aware of and gives more information on Oracle’s OCI discounting in this podcast.
