Amazon: DROP DATABASE Oracle; INSERT our new fast cheap MySQL clone

Latency

I'm sure that AWS may be faster for queries that requiring a lot of composition and processing time. However for many queries/applications (particularly ones using libraries like spring) it will be latency and round trip time which will dominate the operation and there is no way AWS will be able to compete with that.
