Amazon has finally decided that they will be turning down the Oracle data warehouse because they have their own Amazon Web Services database technology with them. The CTO and co-founder of Oracle, Larry Ellison has come out and said that no one with their right frame of mind will ever try to move from Oracle to Amazon.
According to the CTO of Oracle, they have a huge technology leadership over the database of Amazon and this is why there is absolutely no way anyone would prefer to use Amazon database over Oracle. Ellison said in a conference call that the technology of the Oracle database is much more refined than Amazon database after the Oracle second quarter financial results were out.
The technology of Amazon database is much older compared to Oracle, therefore, no other company will ever try to move from Oracle and go to Amazon and struggle with their database. The CTO of Amazon Web Services Werner Vogels came out in a conference and said why they will try to work with the Amazon database and not with the Oracle database.
After the conference, the remark of the CTO of Amazon got under the skin of the CTO of Oracle who comes out and said that Amazon database was very backdated and useless. According to Ellison, Oracle now holds about 50 percent of the market database and they will be expanding it in the coming years.
According to the CTO of Oracle, the database which has been designed by Oracle is very complicated in nature and has a tone of security which makes it expensive and hard to use. Everybody is looking to move from Amazon database to Oracle database, but none of them are looking to move from Oracle database to Amazon database.
Oracle is currently running about 1,000 autonomous databases, which are all available on trial, activation per month to drive the infrastructure in a much easier manner.
According to Ellison the CTO and co-founder of Oracle, they are now working hard to migrate their market share to the cloud and focus specifically on expanding cloud ERP. In the quarter 3 ERP and Net Suit ERP, which are basically the two cloud ERP businesses are showing a combined growth of about 32 percent.
There are about 6,000 customers of fusion ERP and about 16,000 customers of NetSuite ERP. Oracle has been a clear leader in cloud ERP for quite a long period of time. ERP is a very important segment of business and enterprise application. Oracle has been working really hard to stay on top and keep its technology up to date and it is showing in the third quarter financial numbers.
It can now be said that no other company will ever want to shift from Oracle database to Amazon database because of the primitive technology Amazon uses in their database.
