Hi DBA -
You can create tables and load data from spreadsheets, which is a good thing in terms of productivity, but certain not the only way to interact with the Database Cloud Service. I think you are missing a couple of key features of the Database Cloud. You can use RESTful Web Services to define any type of interaction with the data you can define with SQL or PL/SQL. Although this is the same thing you can do with Oracle Express Edition, or any other Oracle Database edition, this is typically not a limiting factor.
But I think you are talking about something along the line of bulk data movement in and out of the Service. You can read the white paper about data movement to learn all the capabilities we have in this area, which can be found here - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/database-cloud/public/data-movement-wp-1844121.pdf. FYI, we find that we can upload up to a million rows a minute in internal tests we have done, which is certainly approaching enterprise strength.
Hope this helps.
