"The hyper-growth we continue to experience in the cloud has rapidly driven both our SaaS and PaaS businesses to scale," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "On an annualized non-GAAP basis, our total cloud business has reached the 5 billion Us dollars mark, and our SaaS and PaaS businesses grew at the astonishing rate of 85% in Q3. That growth and the resulting scale enabled our SaaS and PaaS businesses to increase non-GAAP gross margins to 65 per cent. Our new, large, fast growing, high-margin cloud businesses are driving Oracle's total revenue and earnings up and improving nearly every important non-GAAP business metric you care to inspect; total revenue is up, margins are up, operating income is up, net income is up, EPS is up. Take a look. Q3 was a very strong quarter,"Safra Catz added.

"Over the last year, we sold more new SaaS and PaaS than Salesforce.com, and we're growing more than 3 times faster," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "If these trends continue, where we are selling more SaaS and PaaS in absolute dollars AND growing dramatically faster, it's just a matter of when we catch and pass Salesforce.com in total cloud revenue," the manager said.

"Both our SaaS and PaaS businesses are doing great, but I'm even more excited about our second generation IaaS business," said Oracle Chairman and CTO, Larry Ellison. "Our new Gen2 IaaS is both faster and lower cost than Amazon Web Services. And now our biggest customers can run their largest and most demanding Oracle database workloads in the Oracle Cloud – something that is absolutely impossible to do in the Amazon Cloud," Catz concluded.
