In what shapes up to be a great moment to bring some popcorn, Oracle's CTO pushes back against Amazon's decision to close down Oracle's data warehouse, Larry Ellison said
Moving from Oracle databases to AWS "is just incredibly expensive and complicated," he said Monday. "And you've got to be willing to give up tons of reliability, tons of security, tons of performance... Nobody, save maybe Jeff Bezos, gave the command, 'I want to get off the Oracle database."
While I'm not a DBA, I've worked with a few databases and know just how much of an incredible pain it is to move data from one framework to another. Granted, they were school projects, but I've also done a few real world migrations and it's a HUGE PAIN.
Would anyone here consider making a move? I'm not a fan of Oracle, but this is shaping up to be some good word fisticuffs. Popcorn anyone?
