“As The World 'Goes Software,' Oracle Has An Upside In Hardware” says ESG Analyst

Last month, Oracle invited industry analysts for an annual deep dive on what’s to come. One of these analysts – ESG’s senior analyst Mark Peters – recently posted an update of how he spent some of his time at the event. We totally recommend you visit his blog and check out the post, but here are a few highlights:

Diverse Crowd
Peters was struck by the fact that he wasn’t seeing a lot of familiar faces in the crowd. He later realized the reason for that was because Oracle doesn’t just have a hardware message – it also speaks to the software side of the equation. 

“The opportunities for Oracle to make significant progress in terms of market share and revenue lie in markets that it does not yet dominate. It’s a crucial point for this growing systems house.”

That’s a crucial point we’re well positioned for. Our complete stack of offerings provide world-record-breaking performance by fusing critical pieces of software and hardware in ways that deliver cost-performance unlike anything the tech industry has seen.

Bullish on Storage
Mark filmed a brief interview with Oracle’s Phil Bullinger, senior vice president of storage. Mark and Phil go into great details on the ZFS Storage business.



Magnetic Personality
Mark also interviewed Jim Cates, vice president of hardware development, regarding what’s coming for tape storage from Oracle – and more.
