Oracle 12c Database

It's definitely about the cloud at Oracle OpenWorld 2011. In many ways Oracle has always promoted it's database in the private cloud--long before the term cloud (private or public) became popular. At previous OpenWorlds, Larry Ellison poked fun at the cloud, noting that the notion isn't new. Well, even Oracle must bend to the popularity of the term cloud. I haven't yet heard an official name for the next database release, but I'm betting on Oracle 12c.
