We're free in 3... 2... 1! Amazon unhooks its last Oracle database, nothing breaks and life goes on


We had an agency in Hamilton County that bought into Oracle's promises and migrated everything over to it. Too bad Oracle was not compatible with the rest of the county's financial and personnel systems. Plus, as soon as one their Oracle oracles got proficient, they jumped ship for 50% to 100% more pay, leaving the agency in constant turmoil. Personally, I'd never use the cloud for anything other than something for airplanes to fly thru or bring precipitation, but I'd gladly switch to open source products. Beside, Larry Ellison is already a billionaire several times over.
