Oracle Magazine: What was the biggest cloud
news at Oracle Open World 2011?
Zavery: [Oracle CEO] Larry Ellison
announced Oracle Public Cloud, a broad set
of best-in-class, integrated services that
provide customers with subscription-based,
self-service access to Oracle products in a
public cloud environment.
Oracle Magazine: What are the components?
Zavery: We’re providing applications and
platform services, including Oracle Fusion

Service, Oracle Fusion Human Capital
Management Cloud Service, Oracle Social
Network [see “Social for Business,” page 23],

Oracle Magazine: What’s unique about
Oracle’s public cloud offering?
Zavery: First, we provide a complete set of
integrated services across applications and
platform. Second, our cloud services are
100 percent industry standards–based, so
customers can use SQL, Java, and so on to
build their applications. Third, we provide
customers flexibility to deploy the same
applications both in the cloud and on prem-
ises without rewriting any code.
Oracle Magazine: Where does Oracle Public
Cloud fit for customers running Oracle tech-
nology in their own data centers?
Zavery: If customers want to create a devel-
opment and test environment without
buying a server farm or software, they can
sign up for Oracle Public Cloud and start
building or move their existing application
instantly. They can continue using their on-
premises environment, but they gain the
ability to do development and testing and
add more capacity easily.
