moving to a cloud db world

From: gary hasty 
Anyone ran across any interesting white-papers or articles on
strategies of moving older oracle databases to a cloud-based database?

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ I have a headache just thinking about that. Assuming this is a real system, the really big issue is what will the application logic support for an external database, Or can you just move the whole darned thing?

Good luck with that. What is a cloud-based database again?

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ Well, I guess you take your pick..By cloud-based database do you mean a database as a service like Heroku Postgres (which is awesome by the way) or ObjectRocket? Or do you mean a db hosted on a server instance on something like Rackspace or Amazon, which ultimately that's what database as a service actually is, but you manage everything yourself. I'm not aware of of a Oracle based DBaaS. A startup could be built around that idea, probably.

Who hosts your database server, whatever database software that server is running ("MongoDB is web scale" *snort*), seems irrelevant at that point. You can pay someone else to run Oracle, or something else. Dan
