Interesting! Amazon is behind Oracle, Sun, and IBM's offerings!
Q&A With Gartner's Don Feinberg on Database as a Service and Cloud DBs > > Intelligent Enterprise: Better Insight for Business Decisions: "You call them up and say, 'I want an instance of your database in the cloud.' They contract with Amazon EC2, set up the instance and give me a simple link. Now I have my database in the cloud. Oracle will also let you host your license on EC2. They're going to call it Oracle in a Cloud, but you'll have to put it on the EC2 virtual machine yourself. That's a little different than what Vertica and EntepriseDB are doing because they will handle everything and you pay one vendor rather than dealing with Amazon on your own."
