    “We had many challenges with our previous cloud provider—frequent outages, stability and performance issues on our franchise POS and other critical application environments. Oracle IaaS provided 3X the performance and savings in infrastructure costs. We migrated from our previous provider to Oracle, with the help of Oracle Partner, Suneratech, with zero downtime and no business disruptions.”
