Larry Ellison used most of his hour-long keynote session slot at this week's Oracle Open World conference in San Francisco to trash Amazon and its $10 billion Amazon Web Services cloud computing platform.
Amazon has emerged as an unlikely rival to Oracle, poaching loads of database customers over to Amazon Web Services.
Today, Ellison fired back by detailing in great depth all the ways in which the upgraded, "second generation" Oracle Cloud, announced this week, purportedly beats Amazon Web Services.
"Amazon Web Services uses slow first-generation cloud infrastructure," Ellison says.
Chief among Ellison's criticisms of Amazon Web Services:
· *Amazon is slower: *According to benchmark tests the company says will soon to be published on its website, Amazon is 24 times slower than the Oracle Cloud at running Oracle databases. He challenged Amazon to produce better results, saying "if they can beat them, we'll put Amazon's result in."
· *Amazon's tech is out of date: *Ellison says the comparison gets worse when you're using Amazon's home-grown Redshift and Aurora database products. "Why is Amazon Redshift so slow? Because it's 20 years behind Oracle," Ellison says. He says that Amazon's database products lack simple, basic features that have been common to Oracle technology since the 1980s and 90s, and they pay for it in performance.
· *Amazon is "more closed than an IBM mainframe:" *Because Oracle's database products are available from the Oracle Cloud, the Microsoft Azure cloud, Amazon Web Services, or in a customer's own data center, you have a lot of choice over where and how to use them. Meanwhile, if you want to use Amazon's database products, you have to use Amazon Web Services – which could end up locking you in to using them forever. "I'm not sure that many people will think that's a good idea," Ellison says.
"You know when I'm talking about Amazon, I'm being nothing but fair. You can count on that," Ellison says. "It's just true."
It wasn't all negative: Ellison also showed off some of the design thinking that went into the next-generation Oracle cloud. He's promoting it as the low-cost, high-reliability alternative to Amazon Web Services for developers of all shapes and sizes to use to build and host their apps.
But it's clear that Amazon's shadow is hanging heavy over Oracle, which is redoubling its efforts to compete in the cloud, even as its long-time rival Microsoft establishes a solid niche for itself as the #2 player and the cloud of choice in the enterprise.
Still, while Ellison is as enthusiastic as ever, analysts are skeptical of Oracle's ability to truly be competitive in this fast-growing market.

The police narrative surrounding the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott contradicts the story his family has told the media, and it remains unclear whether he was holding a gun or a book at the time he was shot.
Police killed Scott, an African-American father of seven, on Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, apartment complex parking lot as officers looked for another man named in a warrant they were trying to serve.
Scott’s family said he was sitting in his car reading a book, waiting for his son to come home from school, but Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney, who is also African-American, sees it differently.

Putney said that Scott, 43, exited his car with a gun, not a book, and officers couldn’t find a book at the scene. Putney said evidence and witnesses both support the officers’ claim that Scott was armed.
“It’s time for the voiceless majority to stand up and be heard,” Putney said. “It’s time to change the narrative because I can tell you from the facts that the story’s a little bit different as to how it’s been portrayed so far, especially through social media.”
According to CNN, Putney said that the officer opened fire when Scott refused to put down his gun. Officer Brentley Vinson, who fired the fatal shot, is also African-American and was not wearing a body camera.
The shooting resulted in a night of violent demonstrations in Charlotte on Tuesday. Putney said 16 officers were injured in the protests.

Leading crane, rigging, and heavy transportation provider celebrates a new crane in their fleet, and the start of a large project in the Aurora, CO area.
Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) September 23, 2016
Southwest Industrial Rigging, a US based crane, rigging, and heavy transportation provider has added a 330T Liebherr Crawler crane to its fleet. The new crane adds to the company’s fleet of over seventy mobile and crawler cranes. Since 2014, the company has added over 1,000 tons of capability to their crane fleet, and spent $10 million for new crane equipment over the last 24 months, making their fleet one of the newest in the Southwest. “Including our specialized trailers and trucks, we have invested over $15 million across the board over the last three years. We know that new, well maintained equipment makes us a reliable source for our customer’s crane and transportation needs. They know if they call us, we will get them the equipment they need, and also provide the safest operators and riggers to complete the job to the best of our capabilities, safely and on time “said company Vice President Mike Madge.
Over its thirty years in business, the company’s main operational area has been the Southwestern States of the US, specifically Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. In the third quarter of 2016, the company acquired a contract for a large construction project in the Aurora, CO area. The new crawler crane, which made its way from Germany to Colorado via the port of Galveston, was assembled in August of this year in preparation for the project. “The tilt panel contract was a large deciding factor on purchasing the new crawler. We have heard good things in the industry about the machine and its heavy lift capabilities,” said Madge. The company plans to invest in an additional LR1300 by the end of 2016 in an effort to acquire more tilt panel work in the Southwest. “It is important to keep the communication going with our customers in regards to future needs in their industries. This allows us to strategically purchase the right equipment to meet the demands for lifting solutions when they arise, “continued Madge. The company also is researching the possibility of opening a branch in the Denver area sometime in the near future in order to make equipment more readily accessible to the customers in those areas.

Aurora Design, LLC recently received patent approval for their lumbar support and coccyx relief product called The PerfectSit®, which is targeted towards working professionals suffering from low back pain who sit all day long.
Auburn, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2016
After 3 years of clinical research on the negative effects of incorrect sitting, poor posture and the negative effects of prolonged sedentary behavior on general health, The PerfectSit® is now ready for commercial sale. President of Aurora Design Max Leone shared this, “We are nothing short of thrilled with this long anticipated patent approval for The PerfectSit®. Knowing the amount of research and development that has gone into the product, it’s really satisfying to know that we are ready to get the product into the hands of the general public.”
According to WWMR Research Group, there will be a projected 100 million individuals suffering from some form of back pain by 2018. They also estimated that $23 billion will be spent on back pain by 2018. Extensive research on the negative effects of sitting have been well documented and indicate a need for the development of novel therapies that are safe and effective with fewer side effects than currently marketed products and drugs.
Leone also shared about how The PerfectSit® has been featured on the cover of Plastics Technology Magazine and underwent successful testing at a large academic research laboratory in Upstate New York utilizing Pressure Mapping, Radiographic Analysis and Surface Electromyography Analysis (EMG). “Having personally been a sufferer of low back pain due to sitting all day long at my desk, I knew we had to have quantifiable data along with bonafide relief from test users to really get this patent. And sure enough, the patent approval office saw all of our data and gave us the approval.”
Leone also went on to say, “The PerfectSit® is an engineered portable seat that can be placed on an office chair, on a couch or in a car and is meant to put the user in an optimal sitting position. Everyday spent using the product helps train the brain to be conscious of sitting posture as well as training the body's muscle memory and core structure to maintain excellent sitting alignment."
The PerfectSit® is marketed by Aurora Design, LLC and is manufactured in the U.S.A. by Currier Plastics, Inc. Currier Plastics is a 34 year old custom precision injection molding facility located in Auburn, New York. Reported by PRWeb 4 hours ago.

A performance of great strength, yet enormous vulnerability...
'Vulnicara', *Bjork’s* ninth studio album, is a testing listen from subject to production. The artist, who thrives on working in the abstract and esoteric, has created a true masterpiece expressing the crushing nature of heartbreak. As listeners we are invited in to share her pain and reminded that this woman who is repeatedly hailed as “other worldly” is in fact a mere mortal. The narrative of this audio diary reveals her candid thoughts on the break down of her marriage with artist Matthew Barney. She walks you through the emotionally harrowing transition from the beginnings of the cracks in the relationship, the divide of her family and her own personal healing process. Each track cruelly summons the dull ache of loss in the depths of your stomach.
Coinciding with the her live performances, Bjork is also exhibiting at the Somerset House enabling fans to interact with the latest in virtual reality technology, yet interestingly for her live performance she shies away from the technology she embraces in Bjork Digital. The artist who once proclaimed as a teen that she detested classical music was now on stage surrounded by the magnificent Aurora Orchestra led by conductor, Andrew Gourlay, and throughout out the performance Bjork articulates her heartbreak in string arrangements that come as a distraction from her sorrow.

Bjork flutters on stage like a UV moth adorned with the designs of James Merry as the strings notes guide you into melancholy for the opening track, ‘Stonemilker’. Dancing like a wooden ballerina she demands “emotional respect”. The combination of orchestral strings and Bjork’s attire along with the night divided into two sets she has created a scene more familiar for an Opera singer than critically adored pop star.
The string version of ‘Lionsong’ reveals a softer tenderness to the original harsh textures added by Venezuelan co-producer, Arca. The rawness continues with ‘History Of Touches’, documenting the bitter sweet “last time” with a soon to be ex-lover. Bjork’s voice sways in shushed gentleness as she lullabies the ghosts of her post-coital self and ex-husband.
The violins cut through abruptly, waking us from this lingering wistfulness. It’s like being plunged into cold water. In the chronological tale we are brought to the chapter of ‘Notget’ and the relationship is now over, “We carry the same wound / But have different cures”. She summons strength from the momentum of each bow stroke; each note dragging as her voice roaring louder than before with unhinged anger.

The audiences applaud the art of devastation and after a short interval she returns, demonstrating time heals all. She is now head-to-toe in violent red - a phoenix rising from the ashes. Opening with the ‘Aurora’, the atmosphere shifts and the crowd go from solemn observers to rejoicing fans. The set continues into her past discography and even nods to her role in Dancer In The Dark directed by Lars Von Trier.
Unexpectedly, she dives back into the closely examined relationship with the track ‘Pagan Poetry’, written at a time when the couple were at a much simpler stage, revealing perhaps her wounds are very much still unhealed. She prompts the crowd to retort to her “I Love Him, I Love Him” they bellow back “She Loves Him, She Loves Him”. Either a misconstrued proclamation or confession the mass, it was an uncomfortable revelation to fall on the ears she sang to.
For the encore, the strings failed to recreate the manic nature of techno-infused ‘Pluto’, falling short of the bang the show deserved. With a graceful bow, she simply proclaimed, "Thank you for your interest, I'm really grateful”, and was gone. She left us feeling as if she had more to exclaim but perhaps had revealed too much.
