The customers featured in this book include those who have migrated their existing applications (Oracle, third-party, and custom) and those who have deployed new applications.
We also describe customers who have benefited from subscribing to a single IaaS service to meet their more tactical needs, such as low-cost and high-reliability archive storage.
The motivations for IaaS adoption discussed in this book are organized into four key categories:
Moving applications to the cloud
Managing DevTest in the cloud
Building performance-intensive workloads
Using cloud-based archive storage
