Last month in Oracle World, Larry Ellison announced Oracle Cloud to compete with AWS and Azure.
Ellison showed off a new Oracle Dense Cloud IO bare metal cloud server offering that will provide developers with 36 CPU cores, 512GB of D-RAM, and 28.8TB of SSD storage. That’s a ton of compute capacity, all aimed at high-performance enterprise workloads. It’s more power than Amazon offers with one of its most powerful instance, the i2.8xlarge. It comes at a cost of $5.40 an hour, which is cheaper than what Amazon charges.
Some of the other pricing are also very competitive. Not sure how long they can sustain this and also not sure if there are some caveat’s like you need to get one Oracle database license to enable/use this!.
