Re: Oracle a cloud company?
Oracle calls IaaS a "low-margin, commodity business" that it plays in out of necessity. It needs to have IaaS, but it's focused on SaaS and PaaS. Many doubt is can actually go head to head on cost versus AWS. Oracle says it now has 19 cloud data centers in eight contries with a total storage capacity of 400 petabytes. No doubt AWS is bigger.

Cloud supremacy or cloud counter-insurgency?
Oracle in its own way has staged a remarkable revamp and offers a rich selection of online applications. But to call itself the supreme company in cloud computing requires a redefinition of what the term means. I wasn't able to agree with Oracle's early anti-cloud statements; I think I'll reserve judgement on pro-cloud claims of supremacy. My head is still spinning from the U-turn Larry executed.

Oracle a cloud company?
I'll believe that when Oracle has many data centers as Amazon.
