Software-as-a-service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) cloud revenue was up 32% to $337 million. Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud revenue was up 26% to $138 million. Hardware systems revenue was down 8% to $1.2 billion. GAAP operating income was up 3% to $3 billion, and the GAAP operating margin was 34%.

Non-GAAP operating income was up 2% to $3.8 billion, and the non-GAAP operating margin was 44%. GAAP net income was unchanged at $2.2 billion while non-GAAP net income was up 2% at $2.8 billion. GAAP earnings per share were $0.48, up 2% compared to last year while non-GAAP earnings per share were $0.62, up 4%. GAAP operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $15.4 billion.

"We are increasing our cloud services growth rate while simultaneously delivering record levels of cash flow," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "In Q1, our overall cloud services business grew more than 30% to $475 million in revenue. At the same time, we delivered an all-time record operating cash flow up 7% to $6.7 billion. We are laser focused on two goals: growing our cloud business and growing our cash flow. We’re off to a good start in FY15."

"Our internally developed Fusion cloud applications business grew at a rate of nearly 200% in the quarter," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "As our hyper-growth Fusion applications become a larger and larger portion of our total SaaS sales, that will drive up our overall cloud services growth rate. Our cloud business is already three times the size of Workday, but we won’t be satisfied until we’re number one in the cloud."
