Oracle Corporation Research Report

Oracle has explained its plans to allocate $72 billion for the cloud computing market. One way that the company plans to make use of this budget is to add a new edge to their infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing offerings. The company will install high-end hardware called "engineering systems" loaded with Oracle software in a customer's data center. The customer will pay a monthly fee to rent them, and they will be stored in a "private cloud" that involves both hardware and software.

The inclusion of hardware in their IaaS offerings was made to boost the use of the company's hardware as well as to increase the number cloud subscribers. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said that he expects hardware sales to turn positive in the fourth quarter, with products like the company's Exa-series and Sparc engineered systems being offered in the new IaaS system.
