Oracle Going After Amazon in Iaas

2016 - 09 - 19

“Amazon’s lead is over” said Larry Ellison, whom we considered a character in the business, but we still respect Jeff Bezos more when it comes to his vision and mission in cloud businesses these days.

儘管Ellison是超酷鐵打的老爺,但論到當代雲端事業之格局和視野,我們認為Bezos比他值得受人尊敬。

去年11月新聞,Larry Ellison怎麼表示的?

“He doesn’t consider beating AWS in the infrastructure-as-a-service business the most critical factor in Oracle’s quest to succeed in cloud computing.”
「甲骨文沒想要在IaaS領域幹掉AWS,因為那不是在雲運算裡甲骨文的關鍵勝出因素。」

Oracle’s most immediate goal is becoming the #1 company in cloud applications (SaaS), where Amazon doesn’t have a significant footprint, and where Oracle has a huge portfolio of applications. Oracle also sees SaaS as more profitable than the IaaS business.
「甲骨文最當前的目標,是成為SaaS領域的No. 1,甲骨文則有一大量的軟體服務,在此領域亞馬遜還不算個咖,甲骨文也認為SaaS比IaaS好賺多了。」

急起直追亞馬遜

不料,這老爺昨天居然在舊金山舉行的Oracle OpenWorld上,劈頭就說,Oracle第二代的data center IaaS問世了,所以 “Amazon’s lead is over”…..

原因是:
They offer twice as many cores as Amazon Web Services (AWS), he said, and twice as much memory, four times the storage and 10 times the input-output capacity.

這個理由夠充分嗎?! 看來我們要開始花點時間摸摸看Oracle Cloud (IaaS)了。
