NetSuite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: What It Means for Customers
"But now, at NetSuite’s customer conference last month, NetSuite has announced its plans to migrate its application suite to OCI.

The fact that Oracle now owns NetSuite does not take away from the significance of this announcement. Although NetSuite has always been built on Oracle’s database, it has only been using the database for physical storage. (Salesforce takes a similar approach.) NetSuite built all of its administration and provisioning tools, including multitenant management, on top of the database. Although Oracle is currently in process of moving its Fusion customers to OCI, the move by NetSuite is a much larger workload—with tens of thousands of customer instances to migrate. If NetSuite and Oracle can accomplish this migration—and NetSuite executives repeatedly assured us that it will—it will be a major proof case establishing OCI as a platform for cloud ISVs."
