Larry Ellison says Amazon is '20 years behind' Oracle

Now the Silicon Valley stalwart and its irrepressible Executive Chairman Larry Ellison are as confident and brash about their cloud strategy as the perennial gold-winning Jamaican running when crossing the finish line with another victory.

"The new Cloud MSP programme from Oracle offers partners and customers an avenue to pair leading services with Oracle's Cloud platform to help orchestrate this evolution to the Cloud in an efficient model". "That's why Arrow teams with cloud leaders like Oracle to offer training, demos and full product support through ArrowSphere that can help equip resellers with the expertise they need to accelerate business growth", said Steve Robinson, vice president of Arrow's global cloud business.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Ellison, co-founder of enterprise computing behemoth Oracle, threw down the gauntlet at Amazon Web Services last week during the Oracle World conference in San Francisco.

I'd be willing to bet that those running Oracle software on non-Oracle clouds are more likely to dump Oracle altogether than those running Oracle software on-premises or on Oracle's cloud. It doesn't support going in the other direction.

"Oracle's new technologies will drive the Cloud databases and infrastructure of the future".

Ranger to father: 'Did you just stab her?'
On Monday, Lila's friends brought flowers to the first-grader's school and placed them at her desk, according to media reports. The rangers heard a "thud-like" sound and a high-pitched scream from Lila, who then fell to the ground, the affidavit said.

Cloud computing flips the script. Switching is still not trivial, but once a database is moved to the cloud, it becomes a lot simpler.

According to Harless, Oracle Cloud maximized value and accelerated adoption through the Oracle Accelerated Buying Experience, which enabled Grant Thornton to procure the Cloud services quickly and easily - keeping the firm on track to meet its aggressive deployment timeline.

That's the booming market that Oracle wants to get in on. Maybe Oracle is truly determined to build up a massive IaaS business that rivals Amazon. "The ability to pair the correct people with carefully aligned projects is critical in the highly competitive world of professional services - and it's why we chose an integrated Oracle Cloud infrastructure and analytics environment".

"Cloud represents a huge opportunity for our customers to increase innovation and agility, while enabling reduced cost and complexity", said Sanjay Sinha, Vice President, Platform Products, Oracle. "Our data centre platform provides end-to-end life cycle services across Oracle IaaS and PaaS to help customers enhance the speed of execution and improve business performance", said Wipro's global infrastructure services head Kiran Desai.
