Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison says that Amazon does not even use their own database to run their business. “Amazon runs their entire business on top of Oracle, on top of the Oracle Database,” Ellison said.
Oracle CEO Mark Hurd says that because they have a founder like Larry Ellison they are focused on generational changes. “At the end of the day what’s in our DNA deeply is to build for the future,” said Hurd.
The release by Oracle of its AI-powered Autonomous Database Cloud earlier this year and adding Transactional Processing last week is huge for Oracle and its customers who need this cutting edge technology.
