What should Oracle do with Sun


Re: Hang on a sec

With the exception of Sparc Supercluster, Oracle's engineered systems have nothing to do with Sun tech. Exadata, Exalogic, etc run on Intel x86 processors with Oracle Linux, not Sparc - Solaris. As Sun was not selling these systems prior to the Oracle acquisition (Exadata was HP based), it doesn't make sense to include systems they were building without Sun as part of legacy Sun. If Oracle just wanted to build Exa systems, there was no need to acquire Sun.
