So Oracle have put in a bid for Sun… I suppose the next step is to release Exadata on their own hardware, but I’m sure HP have got some tight exclusivity contracts around this for a while at least.
I guess this purchase makes a lot of sense for Oracle due to their heavy investment in Java. Even though it’s Open Source, being the controlling force behind Java is good for them. The community gave Sun a rough ride over the control of Java. I wonder how they will treat Oracle.
If Oracle buy Red Hat, rather than just clone their product, they can have the full set now.
Can you imagine what OpenWorld will look like in the future? 🙂
