Google hooks up with Scale for cloud collab?! What does it all mean?

Shameless Oracle Flack

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Too little, too late Google. Oracle's Cloud@Customer is public cloud at your data center, same APIs, same management, same price, all supported by Oracle. Azure Stack is a pale imitation, without truly integrated hardware, and with a complex support model.

SMBs will mostly end up in the public cloud. Partners should focus on lift-and-shift of applications and hiding public cloud complexity from SMB users, rather than helping SMBs run their own infrastructure, which is going the way of small companies doing their own payroll; nowadays, almost everyone uses ADP, i.e., SaaS.
