As Oracle was late to get into cloud computing business and Amazon gained the marketshare. So how many years was Oracle behind? What were they doing? When was Oracle cloud 1st gen launched?

AWS in 2006
Azure in 2009
Oracle cloud in ?

    Oracle cloud gen1 was not really a cloud, it was just glorified datacenter services. Count from the beginning of OCI.

      I'm not even in OCI, I've just seen the difference between the products. BTW putting ellipses after all your sentences doesn't make you sound mysterious and wise FYI

      Ya and kurian is working for gcp cause they want a fake cloud like Oracle classic? That’s such a kiddish argument ...just like the kid leading oci :) and as for eclipses... well here are some more just to irritate u ... ... ... ...

      Jesus, do you really think Google hired Kurian because they were jealous of OCIC? What GCP is weak in is winning and keeping enterprise customers. Kurian knows how to lead an org in a way that prioritizes and succeeds at that. GCP has always had the most advanced actual cloud technology of all the providers, they just don't know how to leverage it. They certainly don't have anything to learn from OCIC, lmao

      Anyway, learn how to spell "ellipses" and then we can talk

      To your other points, so you do agree that kurian knew how to get and keep customers unlike oci’s kid boss? To your last point, why would I want to talk to a spelling nazi anyways?

      Yes, I agree wrt Kurian, at least from what I saw. Oracle's always been good at that. I didn't say TK's org sucked or whatever, I just said OCIC wasn't real cloud technology, which is accurate.

    OCI new generation cloud can be counted from 2017 . While initial cloud effort is from 2012 which ended 2018.

      Are they pretty late? I was under the impression that it's not that bad, some of open source orgs infrastructure is hosted on GCP like GNOME

    Larry was busy saying that there is nothin called cloud... hiring an inexperienced person to lead oci shows that he has still not changed his views...
