In its earnings release, co-founder Larry Ellison pointed to an upcoming Gartner report that is set to show Oracle Cloud Infrastructure now surpassing Google as the No. 3 in one of its major cloud ranking reports. This, at the very least, shows how far Oracle has come, as Google Cloud has found itself nearly undisputed as the third cloud behind AWS and Azure.


Oracle had the largest scoring increase, jumping from 62% last year to 78% this year, vaulting it into fourth place, according to the report. Google Cloud, which placed third last year with a 71% score, fell to fifth place in this year’s report with a 75% score.
