As a measure of that demand, Oracle’s total Remaining Performance Obligations (RPO) climbed to over $65 billion — exceeding annual revenue. Our cloud businesses are now at nearly a $20 billion-dollar annual revenue run rate, and cloud services demand continues to grow at unprecedented levels. Business is good and getting better.”
