He was born in the Bronx and was raised by his aunt and uncle. He was later adopted. He dropped out of school when is adoptive mother died.
As a young man he bounced from job to job. For a short period he attended the University of Chicago. But he dropped out after the first semester.
He started working as a programmer. And in a few years he founded his own company named Software Development Labs.
The name Oracle finds its origin in a database for the CIA, which Ellison built in that period. When IBM adobted the Oracle database for its own mainfraim the company grew quickly.
The company is now one of the world's largest enterprise software companies. Oracle is based in Silicon Valley.
In 2019 Ellison hold a 22.5% stake in Oracle, which makes him one of the richest persons in the world. He has an estimated net worth of US$ 66 billion (May 2019).

His base salary is just US$ 1.00 per year. But his total compensation in (stock) options is around US$ 45 million per year. He owns 1.1 billion stocks in Oracle.
The Oracle CEO receives an annual dividend of more than US$ 500 million per year. These amounts sufficiently support his expensive lifestyle with yachts and private jets.
He is an active philanthropist through his own Ellision foundation. In 2018 he donated US$ 200 million to the University of Southern California. It was to establish a research center for the treatment and prevention of Cancer.
During the 1970’s he worked on a database for Ampex Corporation. This inspired him to found the ‘Software Development Laboratories’ in 1977.
SDL was later renamed Oracle after its successful product. This was the Oracle database.
In 2015 Oracle Corporation has more than 135.000 employees. Oracle realizes sales of USD 38 billion with a net profit of USD 10 billion.

The jet is registered to the company Wing and a Prayer Inc. The company is owned by Ellison. Ownership is confirmed in this court document. Although the case relates to an older jet also owned by Ellison.
