We are happy to announce that L-Systems, together with Oracle Corporation, has developed an offer dedicated to IFS Applications customers to transfer the IFS system installation to the Oracle Cloud. The offer is addressed to all customers of  IFS Applications version 8 and higher. The proposal contains two variants of the solution: IaaS and PaaS.


Oracle Cloud dla IFS Applications

IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service provides access to 3 basic services: data processing, storage and data access.

The standard of the service is the providing the computing power (CPU), operating memory (RAM) and storage (HD). They can be increased or decreased at any time depending on the needs. The fee is charged only for the time and amount of used resources.


In the offered solution, within one region (Frankfurt), there are 3 Data Centers (Availability Domain)located 30 km away from each other, within each there are separated 3 Environments (Fault Domain) on which application environments and databases are stored. In addition, the customer Environments can be  stored in a different region, which is the third level of their security. Oracle Cloud provides SLA for availability, manageability and performance as the only one on the market.Oracle’s IaaS offers the best price-performance ratio on the market where you only pay for the resources you use. This is perfectly illustrated by the research carried out by experts from the chronicler.tech portal for a mid-range virtual server, if it is not used for a month. The cost of the cloud in the presented scenario for individual suppliers was as follows:

  1. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure– 11,15 USD
  2. Amazon Web Services – 46,23 USD
  3. Google Cloud Platform – 53,53 USD
  4. Microsoft Azure – 56,49 USD
  5. IBM Cloud – 61,19 USD

In addition, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers the lowest cost of so-called Egress, i.e. downloading data from the cloud. This is illustrated by the summary in the figures below (Figure 1 and Figure 2) showing the cost for 1 GB of data downloaded from the Cloud.

PaaS – Platform As a Service provides access to IaaS Services and the Oracle database with unlimited use, unlike the ASFU license, which allows the database to be used by only one application.

Using the PaaS platform, in addition to providing the operating and database system, provides access to a number of additional services, which are shown in the figure below (Figure 3).
