I almost fell out of my seat when I heard that! I would love to know how many of those trials are real. My BDC use to sign up anyone with a pulse including college interns and people that had absolutely no decision making power to influence any type of of IT purchase. Looks like the sales force really took to heart CG’s orders to just lie to to customers and tell them that ADB is a pre-req to run oracle DB. Will the lies ever cease at this company?

I seriously doubt this is a real number of anything. Just something LE made up because it sounds good. There is no way 5,000 customers signed up for even free trials, no way. Plus absolutely no way oracle could handle it. Lies and more lies
Great, just in time for another BTC rebound, hope all those companies enjoy their free mining capacity.
When your cloud sales are this stellar you should definitely drop how many cloud trials you have on your earnings call. If you can’t get actual cloud customers then tout all the folks you duped into signing up for a free trial.
