Oracle Touts Its Prowess in Cloud Database Computing

Oracle recently showcased its prowess in cloud database computing claiming it beat Amazon’s web service in head-to-head comparison and reinforced its proposition to market by launching a superior Database as a Service solution.

At the Oracle Open World 2016 which concluded in San Francisco recently, the Oracle Executive Chairman and Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison [pictured above] demonstrated that Amazon databases are 20 years behind the latest release of the Oracle Database in the Cloud.

‘Oracle’s new technologies will drive the Cloud databases and infrastructure of the future,’ said Ellison. ‘Amazon are decades behind in every database area that matters, and their systems are more closed than mainframe computers.’

Ellison also announced at Open World 2016 the availability of Oracle Database 12c Release 2 in the Oracle Cloud with the launch of the new Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service. This service provides the full enterprise edition of the Oracle Database running on the database-optimized Exadata infrastructure.
