Will it affect AWS? We get paid poorly even with numba 1 market share. I can’t imagine what life will be like if we lose market share.

    I wish it was Google Cloud that would co-op with Azure.

      I think they offer access to their large Enterprise customers ecosystem and their influence there. Not that they can actually offer tech innovation... I find it extremely hard to believe that what Oracle db does, is impossible to achieve with postgres/spark/Hadoop/mongo/Cassandra/etc. I'm not good with databases but still pretty sure the open source ecosystem of tooling beats Oracle 100%.

      @cookie, boy, you don't have any idea about database, do you? The things you listed are not really direct competitors of Oracle database. Yes, they are databases, but they exist to solve different problems and meet different needs. There's no "one size fits all" for database. Actually, ironically, the more direct competitor of Oracle database is Microsoft SQLserver.

      Naah, I can put everything from Oracle DB into some AWS Aurora, and spawn 50 instances, to beat your performance x10 times! (•̀ᴗ•́)൬༉

    IMHO Amazon is too far ahead in this game. Don't see how these competitors can beat AWS anytime soon. What's their total market share? 10%?

    Amazon has leeched all cloud business. Satya’s Azure and Oracle are also ran’s in the cloud. Losers aligning to fight the leader.

      I was thinking the the same thing. If OPs question is "how"then your answer makes sense.

    Funny how the Microsoft people are brigading with anti-Microsoft talk. Lets get a dose of reality - Azure's cloud revenue is already half of Amazon's but growing much (75%vs 45% yoy) faster and this deal will only serve to close the gap further. There's a reason Satya is one of if not the most respected CEOs in tech right now

      Looks like you believe Satya and Azure will bail OCI. Good luck.

    The market is a lot smarter than the sales pitch can convince to migrate to cloud. The field has been quitting in droves as it’s difficult to change the perception around crappy Azure and shitty Microsoft way of selling and rewarding its employees. Azure is not very profitable and not near what AWS offers by a long shot. The have runs are forced to partner and hope to survive another day to fight. Ask the silicon and HW providers and they will tell you who is expanding and growing real business. The rest are trying to make money from infrastructure already spent on as there is no long term guarantee of usage and monetizing revenue.

    Losers seeing the writing on the wall and partnering to stay afloat. Amazon has grabbed the cloud market for all its worth and losers are stitching alliances of hope. Deep down they know. Satya has written his book and the paid media appreciates his turning around Microsoft. So much fluff as Azure is crappy and support sucks. Like Satya shut down Nokia and windows phone, his successor may call out the Azure fluff.

      OK I like silly theories but this one goes one step too far. Windows phone was a huge money sink which market share was shrinking rapidly. Azure is making profit at large margin and rapidly growing.

    Yet to see real customers, production workloads that will pay us long term. The partner workloads and free credits don’t count. Profitability is hush hush and pipeline is don’t talk. Show me a Apple, Netflix in Azure ?

    Explains the stingy and broke mindset in Azure and Microsoft. All marketing and baloony. God save the company. Satya did not learn from the India parliament election. The also ran’s and second third grade parties had no chance. AWS has cloud business in its pockets by a mile and the rest are looking to recoup investments. You can beg all day for VMware, Dell,EMC, Arista etc to partner but they know you are a loser and an also ran. Rethink and the company needs to hit refresh. Satya GTFO.

    I call bullshit on this. As someone that speaks to customers on a regular basis, there is a huge share of the market that hasn’t migrated yet. >60% of customers in our MAL are completely un-penetrated for any cloud infrastructure services.

    There is plenty of room to grow, plus new “born in the cloud” companies everyday. Microsoft is doing pretty well in the enterprise and corporate space (the slow adopters) and this oracle move will only accelerate that.

    Microsoft and Oracle will benefit from this in terms of tech, but this is best for Oracle's future and survival.
