Larry's Vision For Cloud Domination
Oracle Executive Chairman, CTO and unofficial chief evangelist Larry Ellison took the keynote stage at the Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco this week to share his vision for how Oracle Cloud will overtake the industry's hyper-scale leaders.
The legendary tech leader took every opportunity to knock down some competitors—AWS and Red Hat—while, somewhat uncharacteristically, praising two others—Microsoft and VMware—with which his company has struck new partnerships.
Ellison explained why he believes Oracle's public cloud can win in the market with its unique architecture and an increasing array of artificial intelligence-powered automation capabilities that deliver unmatched security, ease of use, and price-performance.
"We march toward the ultimate goal of giving you a fully autonomous cloud, serverless, elastic, all of the benefits of not just autonomy, but what was promised to you with a Gen1 cloud," he told OpenWorld attendees.
Here are 15 of the boldest statements Ellison made during his Oracle OpenWorld keynote.
