Oracle's Offers for Cloud Computing

I attended the first North American Oracle Cloud Computing Forum yesterday in West Hollywood, CA.

The 2 takeaways were:
- Oracle has started offering their DB and App products on cloud service providers like Amazon.
-- Deploy. You can use, download, and build AMIs using your own Oracle licenses or use the provided licensed AMI's at a higher cost.
-- Backup. You can also (and should) backup your Oracle database to the cloud right now.

I'll be watching for more Oracle products and services coming soon.

- The big push was for building private Platform as a Service (PaaS) clouds with Oracle/Sun infrastructure. This is the the sweet spot for Oracle/Sun with enterprise customers who have apps/policies that are just not ready or able to move to the cloud - maybe never. So take advantage of the technologies and techniques used by public clouds in your own datacenter.

Oracle Launches Worldwide Cloud-Computing Tour

Larry and team are off and running with Cloud Computing.

I thought it would take a little longer, but I was expecting this from Oracle, despite the famous clip What the Hell is Cloud Computing? I still find this very funny (laughing with, not at, ... mostly).
