In what seemed to be a lightly veiled dig at AWS, vice-president of software development Rahul Patil said there is a risk of lock-in when using services that aren't open source.
But Oracle has worked to make the popular open source components available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to avoid lock-in.
Patil said the services, which will be variously available later this year or in 2019, include:
- Container Engine for Kubernetes;
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Events (CloudEvents);
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Streaming (Kafka compatible);
- Oracle Functions (based on Fn and Docker);
- Auto Scaling; and
- Orchestration (Terraform as a service).
