What's the exact opposite of a good time? Watching @Oracle's Larry Ellison give a live webinar. That's right; it's time for a livetwoot thread!
https://go.oracle.com/LP=93581 if you want to follow along.
Instead of following @awscloud's approach of bribing the reInvent House Band with AWS credits, @Oracle licensed Specta (Deepfunk Remix) as their pre-show video music.
Oracle is very good at licensing law.
Note the @zoom_us branding.
Now, they're offering @OracleCloud @ Customer. (OCI on premises, kinda.) This is, to be direct, compelling for customers. Seriously. Talk to a few of them before rushing to judgement.
Already starting with the @awscloud comparisons.
"We'll have more regions" is really not the angle to take on these. Yikes.
"@OracleCloud is in specific data retention jurisdictions they're not" is the way more compelling narrative.
7 Petabytes a day moving through @oraclecloud by Zoom.
No matter how you slice it, that's an economic win.
Whether @oraclecloud realizes it or not, the future looks a lot more like "customers migrating in who aren't Oracle database customers" than other Oracle business units believe. This is a long term trend that there's no reversing.
TIL that Larry pronounces turbines as "turbans."
It is now item 40,734 on the list of things to despise him for.
Larry explains what "this new technology called machine learning" is. I could mock it but honestly? He's doing a better job than any @awscloud keynote I've ever seen on the topic.
"This will take your job away" to the exact folks that will need to champion this kind of product kinda seems to be to be a counterproductive narrative, but I am a simple country Cloud Economist, not a big city Oracle marketer.
Okay, nope nope nope.
1. It was a @CapitalOne breach, not an @awscloud breach.
2. It was a sophisticated attack, not a boneheaded mistake.
3. You sure did lose a lot of customer data yourselves last month to be picking this fight, @oracle. https://techcrunch.com/2020/06/19/oracle-bluekai-web-tracking/ …
Excuse me, @awscloud's premier Route53 database offers a 100% SLA.
Everything Larry is saying right now about Autonomous databases cuts against this @oraclecloud market opportunity:
It's like the unsympathetic version of someone's kids entering the shot. Wow.
Okay, "cutting your @awscloud database bill in half by choosing Oracle" sounds like something you pitch to customers only after you rename "Oracle."
I used to be able to do this, then @oracle bought KSplice and killed it for the rest of us.
He just talked about @Oracle Autonomous Linux, why's he talking about Gentoo now?
"If you want to move data from on-prem into the public cloud you can--you don't have to!"
Wow, something @oracle says you can choose rather than dictating to you what you must do.
Ooh, persistent memory--the thing @oracle sincerely hopes its existing customers lack when it comes to remembering the audits of yesteryear.
Uh, okay. This makes AzureStack and AWS Outposts look like comparative toys.
This is the equivalent of "JEDI / the IC cloud" for the rest of us in @oraclecloud land.
The giant open question: what's the minimum buy? I mean, @awscloud will apparently do this for multi-billion dollar contracts.
Okay, Larry has said "there's no way around it sending your data to @awscloud" enough times that I'm convinced it's a lie.
Turns out, it's half true. There are cases where Outposts won't suffice.
