Providing cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a big business and every tech company worth its salt is involved in the business of providing cloud infrastructure to other companies. Amazon is a big player with its Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure service. Microsoft has its Microsoft Azure. Then there is Google Cloud Platform. IBM also has its own cloud infrastructure business.
Now Oracle has launched its second generation of cloud infrastructure for third-party developers to run their applications in Oracle data centres. This was declared by Larry Ellison at Oracle’s OpenWorld conference in San Francisco.
Larry Ellison said, according to this Venture Beat update, “Amazon’s lead is over. Amazon is going to have serious competition going forward.
He added that he respects Amazon for being the “first mover” in the business of cloud infrastructure.
