Oracle To Invest In Sun Hardware, Cut Sun Staff

There's been much speculation as to what Oracle plans to do with Sun once the all-but-certain acquisition is complete.

According to separate reports on InfoWorld, Oracle has disclosed plans to continue investing in Sun's multithreaded UltraSparc T family of processors, which are used in its Niagara servers, and the M series server family, based on the Sparc64 processors developed by Fujitsu.

However, Larry Ellison has reportedly said that once the Sun acquisition is complete, Oracle will hire 2,000 new employees — more people than it expects to cut from the Sun workforce. Oracle will present its plans for Sun to the public Wednesday.

Oracle boss's affair revealed on billboards

Who said databases are dull?

DATABASE GIANT Oracle's president has admitted to having an affair after large billboards announcing it were splashed all over the world.

The billboards show Charles E Phillips romantically attached to a woman who was not his wife. One of the billboards appeared in New York City on Times Square. The words "Charles & YaVaughnie" were posted along with "You are my soulmate forever!"

According to the New York Times, a red faced Phillips admitted he had been having an affair for the last eight and a half years. He said the woman on the billboards was his mistress, YaVaughnie Wilkins.

Phillip's divorce proceedings began in 2008 and the relationship with Wilkins has since ended. He said that both he and Wilkins "wish each other well."

The billboard also listed a URL for a website with a catalogue of hundreds of photos of the couple dating back to 2001. Many thought Phillips was bragging about his new girlfriend or about to get married again.

There was no word on who might have put up the billboards or what their motivation was.

PSOUG / European Commission approves Oracle's buyout of Sun Microsystems

European approval for Oracle takeover of Sun Microsystems

LONDON (MarketWatch) -- The European Commission on Thursday approved Oracle Corp.'s acquisition of Sun Microsystems after regulators were assuaged over the fate of an open-source database.

The deal removes the last major impediment facing Oracle and its planned takoever of Sun  though China and Russia still need to give their assent as well. U.S. regulators approved the deal months ago.

Oracle said it expects to close the transaction shortly and has scheduled a conference call for next week on its strategy for Sun.

The E.C. had been concerned over MySQL, which Sun bought in 2008. After Oracle agreed to maintain MySQL, the antitrust authorities gave their assent to the deal.
