Amazon Aimed by Oracle’s Ellison

After reporting some earnings beat on Monday night, CTO and firm founder Larry Ellison was not shy about taking up Amazon’s Jeff Bezos head-on, touting his database lead and the efficiency of cloud computing subsidiaries like NetSuite. “Oracle is ranked with an enormous primary lead by Gartner. A distant second is Microsoft, a distant third is IBM, and a ridiculously distant fourth is Amazon who’s making all of the noise,” Ellison instructed analysts. “We expect we now have enormous know-how management in Database over Amazon.”

He told that, in his view, a lot of Amazon’s database expertise is merely outdated programs borrowed from predecessors and slapped with an Amazon title. Ellison was adamant that his firm would retain the lead on database know-how even in opposition to the Jeff Bezos-led serial disruptor. “When it comes to expertise, there is no approach that somebody can transfer – a standard individual- would transfer from an Oracle Database to an Amazon Database,” he declared. “It is simply extremely costly and sophisticated, and you have to be prepared to surrender tons of reliability, tons of safety, tons of efficiency to go forward and do it. So we have got an enormous expertise benefit.”
