Yes, Larry Ellison's Oracle Is Now A Cloud Company

When you think of the major IT companies providing comprehensive cloud computing services, who do you think of? Yes, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft. But you might overlook Oracle if you think we're only a database company. Our IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings are getting a LOT of attention, for example in this recent Forbes article.

And for some truly amazing M7 SPARC processor performance and security features, check out our Software in Silicon Cloud.

NIST Cloud Computing & Big Data Forum, Jan 15-17 2012

NIST Cloud Computing & Big Data Forum, Jan 15-17 2012

On the second day of the NIST Cloud Computing & Big Data Forum, we had a real treat...the keynote speaker was Vint Cerf, Google's VP and Chief Internet Evangelist. Allocated a mere 30 minutes, he actually spoke for more than 45, detailing his thoughts on Cloud Computing, Big Data, and related topics. He highlighted some of the security issues concerning cloud computing, like the problem of "leftovers" (data remaining after a virtual service has been deprovisioned), and the need for strong authentication of both user identities and trusted identifiers. He also emphasized the need for non-proprietary inter-cloud communication and collaboration protocols, and mentioned a bit about Google's cloud services including a comment about their current 100Gb OpenFlow-based infrastructure and their potential need for Terabit connectivity in their data centers.

One interesting Big Data comment he made concerned the problem of feeding data fast enough into today's powerful multicore processors, and suggested the memristor as a possible technology solution.

Later in the conference at a panel on Big Data Use Cases, Veterans Affairs CTO Peter Levin gave a briefing on the VA's Blue Button system for accessing veterans' health care records, and its potential to grow to thousands of terabytes as genetic data is included, just one of many examples of Big Data projects discussed today. Presentations from the conference will be posted on the NIST Cloud Computing Web site.

About

The purpose of this blog is to highlight and to explore general issues around "Cloud Computing" -- its benefits, risks, and component technologies -- and how they are evolving. I'll also periodically comment (of course!) on Oracle's Cloud Computing capabilities, resources, and cloud-related events. -- Harry J Foxwell, PhD, Principal Consultant for Cloud Computing, Oracle Public Sector HW
