Sun Deal Complete, Oracle Looks Ahead
Software major Oracle Corp has completed the takeover of hardware company Sun Microsystems Inc for $7.4 billion and now aims to optimise its database for some of the unique, high-end features of Solaris
The Sun Solaris operating system is the leading platform for the Oracle database, Oracle s largest business.
"With the addition of servers, storage, SPARC processors, the Solaris operating system, Java, and the MySQL database to Oracle s portfolio of database, middleware, and business applications, we plan to engineer and deliver open and integrated systems –from applications to disk — where all the pieces fit and work together out of the box, Oracle said in a statement.
The European Commission cleared the Sun-Oracle deal last week saying the acquisition would not restrict competition in the database’s market.
The deal, which was announced nine months ago, is expected to significantly impact the IT industry. In India, Oracle has more than 25,000 employees while Sun Microsystem has 1,200 people.
