Enough Trace

Oracle's Cloud did not start recently. It goes back to 1999

This article in Fortune Magazine on May 24, 1999,   talks about Oracle's Business Online (BOL), where 22 customers were going to start paying Oracle a subsription fee and not purchase their own hardware, not purchase their own software, not hire their own DBA's. Oracle was going to manage their servers for them, over the internet.

Anybody who's thinking Oracle Cloud started just in the recent years may want to rethink their position.

What happened? How did Amazon's AWS surpass Oracle's BOL, Hosting, Managed Services and now Oracle Cloud?

Is the problem with Oracle Cloud or the fact that most technicians around the world relate to Oracle's DB engine with unreliable assumptions?
