Oracle and DataStax on TechCrunch

I have some serious doubts about Alex Williams’s post on TechCrunch about the connection between the recently announced results from Oracle and DataStax. To exemplify, these paragraphs don’t make a lot of sense to me:

The reason for the drop has more to do with the enterprise acceptance of online applications more than anything else, said Datatastax CEO Billy Bosworth in an interview last week.

Does it mean that enterprises are discovering online applications now?

When companies come to Datastax, they say the number one thing they need is security, Bosworth said. They are building from day one to avoid disaster scenarios.

DataStax introduced security features just recently, so I’ll assume Billy Bosworth was actually referring to fault tolerance and resilience. What ended up in the article is a different story.

Datastax has its own challenges. It competes with Amazon Web Services and all the other NoSQL providers such as 10gen.

Once again I’ll assume the author wanted to refer to Amazon Dynamo (and RDS?), but thought it’ll read better as “Amazon Web Services”.

Actually, now that I read it twice, I realize that I shouldn’t link to it. But at least I can suggest you to waste no time with it.
