hree Oracle skilled population weigh in on customer onvolvement in cloud computing, implementations for instance Oracle CRM on demand, Oracle on the Amazon cloud, and the high cost of submission for Exalogic, Oracle's confidential cloud machine.
On an IOUG component study last year: "The study presented that a large fraction of users are commencing to manufacture confidential clouds, that they have a want to twist up environments promptly and bring ahead competency as they want them. It’s all through virtualization. So is that the cloud? Well, it’s in a company’s ‘little cloud,’ right? I observe that kind of virtualization, and it’s now
pervasive. Understanding virtualization, how to virtualize your database, virtualize your Web servers … is all part of the toolbox you want today -- and that advances you to the cloud.”
On Oracle’s cloud computing direction: “I consider Oracle educated classes with Exadata that they’ve now fetched frontwards to Exalogic, which is the center of their cloud approach, and it truly is giving Oracle with a many groundwork -- good hardware, recital, flexibility. The contest, too, is that it’s not yet mixed with everything. As each of these implements get assembled, it takes time until they get mixed into the complete fabric. For case, the one thing I learn about Exalogic is that you want a divergent console to supervise it than your database. And more integration makes it more valuable.”
On Trex’s use of Rackspace for hosting Oracle applications: "We own the programs, and in this case it makes sense, because we can strengthen on the result and outsource the infrastructure, security and bandwidth.”
On Trex’s use of Oracle CRM On Demand: "In our enterprise type, the ERP result is accessed mostly by inside personnel. Our paddock sales force hardly ever wants to entry to the transactions in our ERP procedure, so a web-based cloud result is phenomenal for them. They can entry to it from household or on the thoroughfare, security is assembled in, we have scalability up and down as we grow. We haven’t truly balanced back down, but we’re competent to roll out certain components and we’re competent to add on to it."
I haven’t had to anxiety about updating security, the aid office desk, or our infrastructure associates throughout Oracle CRM On Demand. We can purpose on the enterprise results, employing the IT enterprise result assembly to aid our sales and selling chiefs purpose on developing our sales and leads.”
"The organised thing is that Oracle is giving its buyer options. If, for instance, we procured a financial gathering tomorrow and unexpectedly twice as more our amount, we could transition our CRM result back in home if needed."
On the high cost of Exalogic: "I’ve observed Oracle’s cloud approach, and there are a two population of divergent accesses financial gatherings can consider. The total confidential cloud, Exadata/Exalogic force, for instance, is a persuasive wares, and I’m certain it’ll gain administration that have many of high-volume, high-transaction, high-performance environments. My only worry is the price-of-entry purpose … because at the end of the day, it’s still kind of like a more conventional cost type, because you pay for this very large portion of steel that’s highly made more efficient, highly very fruitful and created to method greatest loads. The explanation of ‘cloud’ is more usually supported on the pay-for-what-you-consume type, so establishing a large capital expenditure up-front is why I declare it’s a bit ‘anti-cloud.’"
On Oracle’s cloud computing suggesting through Amazon: “We’re commencing to observe things like toolsets become obtainable off-premise in the cloud from Oracle, and while they might not chase every checkbox in the explanations for cloud, many of Oracle’s programs is being submitted back as SaaS [Software as a Service] -- so that’s a good thing, too.”
