ORACLE CLOUDWORLD — Day two of Oracle CloudWorld saw plenty of activity building on day one. Wednesday, though, was more focused on the cloud side of the house, with Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, helming much of the day’s discussion.

Magouryk led the Oracle CloudWorld morning keynote, which picked up on what Oracle founder and CTO Larry Ellison talked about on Tuesday — interoperability among public clouds.

Indeed, this goal appears to define Oracle’s cloud strategy for the coming years. And the company has already started making good on that strategy … without its competitors’ blessings.

“We didn’t call up Adam Selipsky and agree on it,” Magouryk said, half-jokingly, of Amazon Web Services, during a subsequent Q&A session with media and analysts.
