In the cloud computing space, Oracle will offer a range of products for building clouds, including the Oracle WebLogic Server application server, Solaris containers, and Sun Oracle servers and storage. "With the merger between Sun and Oracle, Oracle will offer a comprehensive set of building blocks for managing and assembling public and private clouds," Screven said. He did not, however, talk about the fate of the Sun Cloud public cloud platform announced last year that had been due to begin last summer.
Oracle will spend $4.3 billion in research and development in fiscal year 2011, Phillips said.
Phillips also made an apparent brief reference to a situation he endured last week when a former romantic interest embarrassed him by posting billboards about their relationship in several cities. "Hopefully, you've had a slightly smoother week than I've had," he said.
