It's now been 10 month Oracle delivered PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture.
The first version was clearly oriented on Linux and Oracle database (db on Linux) which matches the Oracle Cloud ecosystem.
The next big step will add PeopleSoft Cloud Manager to model your Infrastructure and deploy in Oracle Cloud.
Though Oracle announced Deployment Packages (DPK) on all platforms (IBM Power, HP-UX, Solaris ...) in the next PeopleTools 8.56 (in 2017) this does not leave big room for other strategies unless competitors delivers:
- tools to deploy PeopleSoft on other hardware IBM Power, HP-UX ...
- build Cloud offer on IBM Power or HP-UX ...
This is clearly not a direction to look at, and we should better concentrate on the battle between Azure, AWS and Oracle Cloud.
