The Future Is Open Why Oracle’s cloud-native stack is fueling innovation by Alexandra Weber Morales


The technologies of tomorrow have the potential to change the world for the better, whether it’s via planet-scale apps scheduled with Kubernetes Federation or blockchain-based trust with Hyperledger.
