Another Thought Leader Sees the Light on Oracle Hardware

“I May Be Losing My Mind – I’m Believing In Oracle Hardware”

Read  the blogpost from ESG Founder and Senior Analyst Steve Duplessie for his insights into the advantages of running Oracle on Oracle. Select quotations are below – but read the full blogpost here:

  • “I didn't realize Oracle's cloud strategy is so extensive…”
  • “it’s $12,000 a year for 1 PB of storage. 1000 TBs. For $12 grand. That’s insane.”
  • “Every company in the world can afford to archive data at those price points.”
  • “Oracle is 100% committed to expanding its cloud services.”
  • “Oracle is vertically integrating everything from the chip to the app to the middleware to the storage to the cloud …  The real world benefits from one throat to choke, and one “system” approach. The consumer variant of this has been Apple, and it worked. We’re already seeing a huge trend back to integrated computing stacks, and Oracle just happens to be positioned enormously well here – since everyone runs their database and apps.”
  • “Bottom line is if you're running Oracle software, you can get net incremental advantages that make the software run that much better on Oracle hardware and in the Oracle Cloud.”
