Data would still need to be mobile for customers to jump ship. Once your data is parked inside of Oracle's datacenter, how easy is to it to get up and move it to another provider? How difficult would it be to simply open that data up for access with services provided by another cloud company?

Lock-in is still possible but going this route gets very shady.
