A couple of weeks ago, Bob Rhubart (who runs the OTN architect community) assembled four of us who are involved in Oracle’s Cloud efforts, public and private. The conversation turned into a four-part podcast, of which the first part is now available. The participants were James Baty (VP of Global Enterprise Architecture Program), Mark Nelson (lead architect for Oracle’s public Cloud among other responsibilities), Ajay Srivastava (VP of OnDemand platform), and me.
I think the conversation will give a good idea of the many ways in which we think about Cloud at Oracle. Our customers both provide and consume Cloud services. Oracle itself provides both private Cloud systems and a global public Cloud. All these are connected, both in terms of usage patterns (hybrid) and architecture/implementation (via technology sharing between our products and our Cloud services, such as Enterprise Manager’s central role in running the Oracle Cloud).
That makes for many topics and a lively conversation when the four of us get together.
