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



Someone at Amazon must've clocked the licensing terms on their Oracle contract after a hardware manufacturer swap.

That said, Oracle has perhaps the most airtight data recovery mechanism outside of UNISYS's. Complicated by their no read lock architecture and time consistent view technology too. You get what you pay for, as with everything else in this world.

Not sure I'd want to push my enterprise DB out into a cloud infested with so many buzz-phrases either. (Actually, this is a bluff; I don't reckon putting your enterprise D/B on the cloud is a great idea in any scenario if you have the dosh to do it any other way).
