What is cloud?
Its frustrating despite so many years we talk Cloud in such abstract term. When this article says "cloud" does that mean the "cloud" is hosted by software vendor in its own DC, or does that mean client has created a "cloud" in its own DC, or cloud implies a public cloud where the cloud is hosted by an external third-party in a standard model. What is Oracle refering to as cloud? Looks like the article is referring cloud as an operating model than a delivery one. So, most of this is on-premise or may be Oracle hosted in its DC, rather than a cloud provider such as IBM, Rackspace, AWS, or Virtustream. Will be good to get clarity here.
