Oracle’s CTO took to the stage for a second time to present on the cloud migration system.

On Tuesday, Oracle’s former CEO and current CTO Larry Ellison took to the stage at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 for the second time.

The CTO was presenting their new platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering. Ellison was keen to highlight the improvements to the service that was launched almost two years ago.

During the talk, he demoed the product himself and as the Register reported, Ellison migrated a hypothetical Java application running on a WebLogic server and an Oracle database to the corresponding cloud services.

Ellison stated that this service offered a modernisation for user’s applications and that a move would automatically update and patch software.

To end the presentation, Ellison predicted that PaaS would become the Oracle’s biggest cloud service.

Larry’s first keynote at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 can be streamed here:
