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

People do not get what they pay for. They get a rosy glow from buying market leader and brandname, and rarely screw down perpetual outgoings. If you don't mind privacy concerns, then cloud is the way to go. Vendors have been charging murder, for products in limbo. Sometimes they need to be shown the door. Amazon is selling the door (as are others), and brandname vendors will panic when the skills for painless converts arise.
