The Momentum is Not Slowing Down

Dave Bennett, CTO, Axway

“People (are) continuing to buy cloud technologies, cloud infrastructures, cloud platforms, and I think it’s forcing (Larry Ellison) to start riding that same wave. And if you think about it, if I was Larry, I would be a little anti-cloud myself…for business reasons primarily. Because if you think about things like storage and databases and core technologies, even servers–brand is not as relevant when it comes to getting that compute power from a cloud provider. You’re paying for an SLA, you’re paying for uptime, scalability… You don’t really care if the storage is EMC or IBM or HP or somebody else, and you don’t care if the database is Oracle or MySQL.”
