Microsoft and Oracle are Partners in the Enterprise Cloud

Microsoft and Oracle are Partners in the Enterprise Cloud

Microsoft and Oracle has confirmed their agreement for joint collaboration in cloud computing. Now Oracle Java, Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server are supported on Windows Hyper-V server and in cloud of Windows Azure. Azure subscribers would also be able to enjoy Oracle's Linux. CEO of Microsoft, Stave Ballmer, said that they are having secret cooperation with Oracle since long. But it is now time to make it public. The terms of agreement are not clear but its main key point is to support Oracle technologies on Windows platform. Initially Microsoft’s Windows Server Hyper-V and in Windows Azure will support Oracle solutions.

Businesses are having tendency towards cloud based services these days. In this race, small companies have proved to be successful than leading software giants. So based on performance track of past, Microsoft & Oracle decided to joint venture, and leaving their differences behind. The history shows that founders (Bill Gates & Larry Ellison) of these organizations have decade long competition. Larry Ellison started a low profile company with high profile competition when Bill launched its Windows operating system. It proved to be successful in the beginning until SQL Server is introduced to hammer Oracle sales. Soon SQL took lead in database business. The subscription based model of cloud computing have proved more successful. Workday and Salesforce have proved to be efficacious with small monthly service charges for using million dollar setup at small cost. They have grabbed spotlight and it affected their share prices hike more than any other similar business.

Cloud based services have turned longtime rivals to partners. Microsoft will promote now Oracle software like Java, Oracle, Linux for Windows Azure and Windows Server. Steve Ballmer is taking company ahead from Bill Gates ideology. In cloud services model, an individual entity cannot push whole market, but to risk its future growth.

Oracle investors are worried due to low sales for its third and fourth quarter of year 2013. It is 3rd largest software company but lagging behind expectations. And other minor entities are proving themselves as trend setter as Salesforce. Amazon is providing cloud services AWS (Amazon Web Services) for rent and enjoyed 237 percent increase in shares over last five years. Salesforce.com shares have surged 105 percent in same time span. While leading Microsoft & Oracle, enjoyed 21 & 38 percent rise respectively.
