Oracle CEO Larry Ellison on the Cloud, HP and Innovation in Silicon Valley (Video)

Oracle Chief Executive Larry Ellison was in rare form at our D10 conference Wednesday. After the jump, video highlights from the session.


CEO, Oracle

Ellison has been in charge of database giant Oracle since he founded the company in 1977. Since then, Oracle has grown into a multi-million dollar company, knocking out (Informix) or absorbing (Sun Microsystems) its competition. Ellison also races sailboats -- his team won the America’s Cup in 2010 -- as well as flying planes. He also plays tennis and guitar.
