Oracle has announced a new scheme designed to incentivize on-premises customers to make the switch to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
Under the Support Rewards program, Oracle technology license support customers will earn $0.25 for every $1-worth of OCI Universal Credits purchased and utilized. These credits can be used to pay for any OCI service on a pay as you go (PAYG) basis.
Customers with Oracle Unlimited License Agreements (UCLA), meanwhile, will save at an even greater rate: $0.33 on the dollar. The company says this means a qualifying customer could effectively write off a $500,000 support bill by migrating $1.5m of on-prem workloads to the cloud.
