Oracle Reportedly Hiring

Sun will reportedly be integrated into Oracle, not run as a free standing subsidiary

Oracle is reportedly recruiting executives to replace the ones it expects to leave or get fired when it takes over Sun, which will be integrated into Oracle, not run as a free standing subsidiary.

Sun chairman Scott McNealy (pictured below) is expected to be offered a seat on the Oracle board. Oracle might sell off at least parts of Sun’s storage operation like, say, tape which reportedly holds little fascination for it although Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has said otherwise.

The HP Xeon-based Exadata data warehouse machine, Oracle only adventure in hardware before Sun, and a reportedly very successful adventure at that, will be replaced in six months to a year by Sun x86 equipment but then that’s only logical.
