What Went Wrong With Oracle's Quarter? - Arik Hesseldahl - News - AllThingsD

Oracle had a bad quarter, but it can now point to at least one large Exadata cloud

Ellison also hinted that Apple is a big Oracle customer. He mentioned a “a very large American smartphone manufacturer” that had bought more than 30 Oracle Exadata systems as it built out its cloud. Unless I’m missing something, there’s really only one company that fits that description, and that’s Apple. Its use of Oracle gear within the mix at its North Carolina data centers has been speculated about before, but never confirmed by Apple directly. (Big surprise, that.)
