In this Cloud Wars Minute, Bob offers five reasons why Oracle, the fastest-growing major cloud provider in the world, crushed Q3.
00:31 — Oracle had a phenomenal Q3. Bob details five reasons that made the company’s third-quarter so successful. Oracle’s total Q3 cloud revenue was up 43% and its cloud infrastructure business was well over 50%.
01:31 — Oracle is a company that only a few years ago had no presence in the cloud infrastructure business. All of the sudden, Oracle is a legitimate player.

- Oracle’s Gen2 architecture performs better, has lower security, and a lower cost
- The flexibility and deployment of Oracle applications
- Oracle’s portfolio of end-to-end integrated applications
- Autonomous database gaining momentum
