17:21 EDTQCOMSemiconductor Manufacturing, Qualcomm form joint venture to focus on 14nm tech
Earlier on Tuesday, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm Global Trading -- an affiliate of Qualcomm (QCOM) -- announced the formation of SMIC Advanced Technology Research & Development, an equity joint venture company. The joint venture company will focus on R&D towards next generation CMOS logic technology and an advanced integrated circuit development R&D platform. SMIC Advanced Technology R&D will be majority owned by SMIC, while Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm will be minority shareholders. "By enabling fabless semiconductor companies to join the development process as shareholders, the product development cycle can be shortened and the advanced process node tape out time can be accelerated," said the statement. In the first phase, the joint venture will develop 14 nanometer CMOS technology for mass production, which will be based on imec's expertise. The project will be done at SMIC's production line. SMIC will have the rights to license the required intellectual property rights on the mass production technologies of advanced nodes developed by the joint venture company.

06:04 EDTMSFTOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."
