Dave Rowe: No "dodging" at Rimini Street
For the record, Rimini Street Sr. VP Dave Rowe objects to use of the term "dodged" as too subjective in this story. In an email exchange, he said CEO Seth Ravin didn't "dodge" revealing the number of customers who still dowload their Oracle software to a Ramini Street datacenter. He said "slightly fewer than 100" out of 700 current customers still download for Rimini Street hosting. Rowe thinks the number peaked at an earlier date at 120 but is checking. Also, some PeopleSoft contracts prohibit movement of the software off-premise; some don't, he added. I would stand by the original phrasing.

Rimini Street decision followed TomorrowNow brouhaha
I think the legal issues overwhelm the stated reason of not wanting to build out a global data center presence. After the TomorrowNeow brouhaha, Rimini Street concluded it was too exposed, running its customers' software on its own computers. The 2011 decision was followed by Rimiini Street refusing to host new customers starting in 2012. The timing isn't just a coincidence.
