Microsoft & Oracle Are Teaming Up Against Amazon Web Services

Interesting to see both Microsoft and Oracle are teaming up to make their clouds compatible with the other. This will certainly help both companies catch the leader, AWS.

Microsoft and Oracle have been working to make life easier for overlapping customers of the two cloud providers. It turns out the pair have been working together since 2019 on a project that linked Oracle’s cloud infrastructure to Microsoft’s Azure cloud infrastructure. Customers liked having the ability to use Azure’s data analytics tools in combination with their ERP software from Oracle, but moving data between the two platforms was time-consuming.

I think the real success measure will be if companies add any additional paid features from each platform.

What do you think of the partnership? Let me know on Twitter.
