In recent years, Oracle has been intensely focused on its cloud strategy
as the key to its growth. At Oracle Open World 2016, with the
announcement of Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure, Larry
Ellison said, “Amazon’s lead is over.” It was an ambitious goal: At the
time, Oracle’s cloud infrastructure (OCI) business was bringing in less than
$200M per quarter.
Uptake of Oracle’s cloud applications is great, but when it comes to Oracle really competing with Amazon or Microsoft as a platform for independent software vendors (ISVs), the story is different.
The absence of multitenant ISVs on OCI is not because of a lack of
capabilities. Oracle’s flagship database, since v12c was released in
2013, has built-in multitenancy in the form of database containers,
which allow multiple tenants to share a single Oracle database, with
individual containers assigned to each tenant. This approach puts the
multitenancy into the infrastructure layer, allowing developers to focus
their efforts on application development, not on the mechanics of
Oracle’s lack of commercial SaaS providers building on OCI is about to change.
