Getting Started With Oracle Database Application Migration to Azure Resource Manager Instance

You can migrate an Oracle database application to an Azure Resource Manager instance.

The following components are required for Oracle database application migration:

  • An Azure account that has an Azure images (template) on the Azure cloud: This is the destination where Oracle application data will be migrated.
  • An Azure Resource Manager instance configured in the Commvault environment: This is the point of contact for Commvault with Azure cloud.
  • The Oracle Agent: The agent is the access point for the Oracle database that is the migration source. Install the Oracle Agent on the source.
  • The VSA Agent for Azure: The agent is the access point for the Azure Resource Manager instance. You can install the agent either on the Azure cloud or on-premise.

Step 1: Install the Workflow Engine Package

By default, the Workflow Engine is installed as part of the CommServe installation. You can configure Workflow Engine package on any of the client.

For information about installing Workflow Engine, see Installing the Workflow Engine.

Step 2: Create an Azure Account

Complete the following tasks:

  1. Create an Azure account that contains Azure virtual machine image. For more information, see Configuring the Azure Resource Manager Instance.
  2. Verify that you installed a proxy client in the Azure cloud, and then set up and synchronize a remote cache on the client computer. For more information, see Setting Up a Remote Cache on a Client Computer.

Step 3: Configure the Source Client

Complete the following tasks for the source Oracle client:

  1. Add the source client to the Command Center. For more information, see Adding a Database Server.
  2. Configure the File System Agent on source client. For more information, see Getting Started with UNIX File Systems.
  3. Run a full backup of the Oracle database. For more information, see Performing Oracle Backups.
  4. Enable client data collection on the source client. For more information, see Enable Client Data Collection for Oracle Database Application Migration.

Step 4: Create an Azure Virtual Client

Complete the following tasks:

  1. Add a new virtual client for the Azure hypervisor. For more information, see Adding an Azure Hypervisor.

    When you add a new virtual client, a corresponding virtual client group is created automatically.

  2. Configure the firewall settings for application migration. For more information about configuring the firewall settings, see Application Migration Firewall.

Step 5: Create a Recovery Target for Azure

Create a recovery target for Azure Resource Manager. For more information, see Creating a Recovery Target.

Note: You can migrate only Azure user created images (templates) to the cloud.

Step 6: Migrate the Oracle Database

Migrate the Oracle databases to an Azure Resource Manager instance. For more information, see Performing Oracle Database Application Migration.
