OOW13: Cloud roadmap & announcements – from zero to H/A WebLogic Cluster plus Database RAC in 30 minutes0
All software from Oracle should run both on premise as well as in the cloud. Moving components from on-premise to cloud or vice versa should be painless: the infrastructure in the cloud and the platform in the cloud should be the same (so far as possible) as on premise.
And here is the current status of (planned) cloud offerings:
Read on for three major announcements around the Oracle Cloud:
OOW13: Sneak Preview of the Major Announcements?! In-Memory Database, PaaS (Database and Java) and M6 big memory machine0
Recent press releases as well as the comment provided by Oracle’s top brass around the FY14 Q1 earning provide some insight in what the key stories seem likely to be during this year’s Oracle OpenWorld conference. Note: I write this article before having any real information (that would put be under embargo such as a NDA).
Some remarks around the FY14-Q1 earning report by Mark Hurd seem to suggest certain areas of interest: “….a couple of comments about Oracle OpenWorld, which is next week. We plan to have roughly 60,000 people at the event in San Francisco from 145 countries. We expect to have 2 million attendees online.
And we will make some significant product announcements at the event as well. We’ll be introducing Oracle 12c in-memory database. We’ll be talking about it, being able to deliver 100x faster application performance using our new architectural approach. We’ll talking about — we’ll be talking about existing Oracle apps that can now run in the Oracle Database functionality without change when using this in-memory capability. We’ll have some releases in cloud. We’ll talk about we’ll have some releases in HCM and talent management, we’ll talk about database as a More >
The attraction of APEX has increased tremendously with the recent launch of the Oracle Cloud. APEX already supported departmental development and deployment of business applications with minimal involvement from the IT department (only a database needed be made available). Positioned as the ideal replacement for MS Access, APEX probably has managed better to capture the eye of developers and was used for enterprise application development at least as much as for the kind of tactical applications that Oracle strategically positioned it for.
With APEX as PaaS & DevaaS from the Oracle Cloud, a leap is made to a much higher level of business value. Now the IT department is not even needed to make infrastructure available with a database running on it. All the business needs is a credit card. And the business application that is developed, managed and used from the cloud through a standard browser can now just as easily be accessed by users from around the world as by users from the business department itself. As a bonus – the development of the APEX application is also done in the cloud – with no special demands on the location or the enterprise access privileges of the More >
Oracle Open World 2012 was the cloud conference. There can be no doubt about the central theme of the conference. In week that had clear skies throughout, Oracle kept telling the story of the Cloud. To be honest: much like it did last year. And after I signed up for the Oracle Java Cloud in October 2011 and received an email as confirmation – exactly nothing happened for the next 12 months. And nothing else has happened to this very day (10th October 2012). I will grant Oracle that the story is very impressive. And kind of logical as well. But I only know of a single person who has actually been on the Oracle Java Cloud – and of over a dozen who are still waiting to get access. So I will start believing the entire story when I get some tangible (as tangible as clouds get anyway) proof.
Let’s focus on the story. What is Oracle’s cloud story? Well, it is everything really – a really big cloud! The mission Oracle has defined around the cloud is ‘to make every part of Enterprise Technology and Business Applications available to any partner and any customer throughout the world – via the internet’ (wherever that makes sense – as for some products this may not be meaningful at all).

Last night, Oracle Open World 2012 kicked off with the keynote session by Larry Ellison. In just under one hour, and with a novelty for Larry watchers (no more “next slide please”),
Oracle’s CEO had a number of interesting announcements.
Oracle will provide cloud services (no surprise) on all three tiers: SaaS, PaaS and (the surprise) IaaS.
I am presenting later today on the Oracle Fusion Middleware Forum (Spoorwegmuseum, Utrecht). The topic of today’s presentation is cloud computing – especially Platform as a Service – and how WebLogic provides the Platform in the cloud.
