At Oracle OpenWorld recently, Oracle CTO Larry Ellison vowed that his company will be the leader in all categries of cloud including SaaS, Paas, IaaS, and now DaaS ( Database as a Service). Oracle now offers both its flagship Database as a Service as well as Java as a Service.
The new database option is potentially a big leap forward for Oracle customers looking to expand their cloud options. Currently new instances (and therefore new applications ) of Oracle can be installed on AWS. With DaaS Oracle provides the ability to easily move existing on-premises instances of Oracle Database 11g and 12c to the cloud. This means that Oracle has really mastered their Replication Services - of both data, application code, as well as the datbase itself. Pretty cool capabilites if you are a DBA looking for flexibility and deployment options or as an established Oracle Database client looking to move from on-site to a cloud based solution.
During OpenWorld Ellison also noted that within the marketing cloud division of SaaS there were 29 services developed in house or acquired last year resulting in more customers and more applications than other organization.
Oracle remains committed to the cloud as their cloud investments and revenues continues to grow. See Oracle + BluKai for more information.
