Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Zoom suffered a major outage that may have cancelled your video meetings

And we all know which vendor they rely on for their cloud services—none other than the venerable, award-winning, market-leading OCI!

They are probably having conversations with AWS and Azure right now.

RE: That twitter link

Nice joke there bro, shows the depth of the average person visiting here.

Last I checked, the year is 2022 now, not 2019.

I don't care who it is, it is still a bad look

As an Oracle employee you of all people should understand that blame assignment is extremely important.

Looks like AWS was to blame.

I don't care who it is, it is still a bad look. I'd still want 3x compensation for any downtime plus a full refund. I wouldn't fully trust any of them. but especially 0.

Looks like AWS was to blame. That's what their twitter account says anyway, even though it would be fun to blame Oracle.

Gee, isn't the whole point of going into the cloud is to not have downtime?? Hmmm, not a good look...

If were going into anyone's cloud I would insist on getting a full refund for every minute of downtime AND to get credit 3x of what I was refunded.

Shouldn't be a problem if your cloud is reliable.

A platform with the scale of Zoom will be running on multiple infrastructure platforms.
As below, AWS and Oracle announced in 2020 that they're powering Zoom, neither said "EXCLUSIVELY". Indeed the ORCL announcement said Zoom were using OCI to "support it's growth......"

"Isn't Zoom running on AWS?"

No: https://www.oracle.com/corporate/pressrelease/zoom-selects-oracle-to-support-growth-042820.html

Though, it depends who you also ask I guess: https://www.theregister.com/2020/12/01/aws_zoom_preferred_cloud_sorry_oracle/
