Oracle Acquisition Spurs Cloud Competition - Digits - WSJ

Cloud container competition catch-up

"The database giant on Friday quietly bought an Austin, Tex., startup called StackEngine Inc. The Oracle did not disclose the terms of the deal, but the acquisition will be working in a strategically important area called the Oracle Public Cloud.

Containers are part of a sea change in the way software developers create computer programs, offering new ways to quickly build and roll out software on large networks, said Joe Breda, a former Google engineer who is now an entrepreneur in residence at the VC firm Accel Partners."
