Oracle and Sun are partners for more than 20 years. The Oracle Databases are performing better on SPARC platforms then on any other. Now they are owning all stages of server business, what begins with hardware development (SPARC) and ends with software development (Solaris, ORACLE). But what does it really means? The end of MySQL, no more free SDKs, Open Solaris?
I hope that Oracle will know how to use the power of the open-source software.
…and at least, if it’s all about the money (yes, it is) Oracle knows that for the first place in the software/hardware business he needs better and cheaper solutions than the others…
