Cloud-native databases have numerous advantages in terms of scalability, cost, and performance over traditional IT architecture. For this reason, enterprises may want to migrate their legacy Oracle databases to Alibaba Cloud to save on long-term costs and take advantage of improved scalability and cloud-native features. When an enterprise is evaluating the feasibility of such a migration, an important first step is to complete a readiness self-assessment to determine the best destination database and gain a better understanding of the cost and risks involved.

You can use the Advanced Database & Application Migration (ADAM) service from Alibaba Cloud to profile your Oracle source database, evaluate the compatibility, specifications, and migration risks of potential destination databases, and estimate the cost of the destination databases.
