Well, I guess there are worse people to be compared to than Larry Ellison. There is a short article on his views on cloud computing on CNET:
The problem is that every tech company now wants to be associated with cloud computing, no matter if their products and services meet the basic criteria. At least Ellison isn’t afraid to address the hijacking of the phrase by marketers, including Oracle’s.
I complained about this, although much less eloquently, on Coté’s podcast.

The ironic thing is that last week his company announced support for Oracle running on Amazon’s EC2?????
Oracle on Amazon’s Cloud (EC2)
Don’t see how it’s ironic. Marketing people will be marketing people; they will use whatever the buzzword-du-jour is regardless of whether it’s silly or not. In the meantime, Mr. Ellison apparently has at least a tiny bit of sanity as his personal opinion on the matter. 😉
