I found this fascinating quote today:

Oracle is a big winner with this deal, mainly because of the hardware they have always coveted. However, there are two jewels in this deal, MySQL and the cloud services. I already talked about MySQL, but the cloud services that Sun has mentioned recently will be a big bonus for Oracle. Oracle is already working with cloud providers to have Oracle as a data storage choice, so owning their own cloud offering could be huge for them. They have always wanted an entire stack offering from hardware to database and middleware. Now they can offer that, and soon offer it in the form of cloud services. Oracle has just positioned themselves as a major player for the next few years.robdiana in Business, java, Regular Geek, Apr 2009
