Oracle co-founder and executive chairman Larry Ellison utilized his keynote address of Oracle OpenWorld 2017 bashing Amazon Web Services. He divided his time equally between promoting his newest product and taking swipes at AWS.
Amazon Web Services is Oracle’s fiercest competitor in the cloud services space. It was no surprise that Ellison went after Redshift, Amazon’s data warehouse product in such a big way, poking holes in aspects such as inflexibility and cost. He alleged that there were loopholes concerning the uptime promise within the service-level agreement for AWS Redshift.
