Re: Oracle Cloud in the same league with Azure?
You're seriously wrong. Oracle's cloud includes SaaS/PaaS/IaaS, including SaaS applications for Cloud@Customer, and is on track to be $10 billion in sales within 6 quarters. Oracle's cloud is growing MUCH faster than Amazon's (72% versus 40%) and Oracle IaaS is the newest and most innovate IaaS on the market, and the only enterprise-capable IaaS for the foreseeable future.
This is nonsense. Growth percentages without accompanying absolute figures are for salespeople and mugs. AWS dwarfs Oracle's cloud and it's still growing at 40% vs 72%? That is massive.
Oracle will upsell its cloud to its poor, beleaguered customers for a while, but AWS and Azure are far bigger and play across far more spaces. Azure in particular for hybrid is obviously the leader, for the reasons outlined in the article.
