Ellison indicated to OpenWorld attendees that Oracle sees AWS as its primary competitor in the infrastructure as a service (IAAS) market. Amazon has helped to define the public cloud market and has become a dominant player in the space, but has drawn some concern over recent service outages. 

Both Microsoft and Google have also announced plans to compete with Amazon on the IaaS space.
