Oracle Cloud: See It in Action at Oracle OpenWorld

With the rapid and widespread adoption of cloud technology, event organizers are expecting a sharp jump in interest in Oracle Cloud at Oracle OpenWorld 2012, which will take place in San Francisco September 30 to October 4.

In addition to Oracle's rapidly growing Oracle Cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings, Oracle's new platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings—Oracle Cloud Java services and Oracle Cloud database services—are expected to attract special interest.

"With Oracle Cloud database services, you can get a full-fledged slice of Oracle Database in a matter of minutes," says Richard Greenwald, director of database cloud initiatives, Oracle.

The principle holds true for Oracle Cloud Java services, which enable the creation of a rich application development environment within minutes—boosting developer productivity by reducing the need to manage complex development and testing environments.
