Oracle has no problem with being as shady as necessary to hit their sales goals.
They're going to lock in customers to the whole Oracle ecosystem as much as
possible.

And Ellison has been upfront about the fact that his target is for Oracle to make
3x more revenue from a cloud customer than from software licenses for a similar on-premise
customer.

I worked there when they were just getting started on the cloud strategy. I pity the
poor fools who tried to actually do anything in Oracle Cloud early on. Maybe they've
acquired some technical sanity now, IDK. Or maybe it's still a shell game where they
give customers big discounts on the on-premise licenses they actually use, in return
for getting a slice of revenue on cloud services that go unused (but which look good
enough to fool Wall St analysts).
